Regulars were treated to a feast of live music and a wide selection of real ales at The Rose and Crown pub in Manea on Saturday.

From 11am to 11pm, local bands including Storm, Summerland, Manea Silver Band, The 142s and headliners Switchblade performed.

Punters enjoyed the music while sampling the numerous offerings of the real ale festival and a charity auction was held. In total, £1,500 was raised for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).

James Burroughs, of the Rose and Crown, said: “It was absolutely rammed. It was a lot busier than we expected. It was nice to see everyone out.”
