A BANK holiday beer festival featuring more than 30 real ales looks set to draw the crowds at the weekend.

The festival at the Half Moon pub in Belchamp St Paul is in its fifth year and also offers a wide selection of ciders and perries.

It starts tomorrow and will continue through until Monday, with a barbecue running throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday and six bands due to perform.

Paul Acton, landlord at the 16th century pub, said: “There is something for everyone and we always get lots of support from the community.

“The festival helps bring everyone together.”

Companies and organisations from around the village have sponsored some barrels at the event.

Proceeds will go to a number of charities, including the Essex Air Ambulance.
