Head down to Anne Eliabeth Arts School, Church Road, Aylestone, Leicester, LE2 8LB on Friday 29th, Saturday 30th or Sunday 31st July.

Lance and Claire, organisers of the Beer Festival

Claire and Lance work hard to provide our Leicester branch with much needed funds. And we all get to enjoy all the fruits of their labour!

The fun includes beer, cider, perry, wine and now Pimm's...

Along with delicious cheeses, pork pies, samosas and handmade bread.
