Beer drinkers to raise a glass to charity

Laura Kearns 21st Jun, 2017

GLASSES will be raised for charity at this year’s Stratford Beer and Cider Festival.

Since the festival at Stratford Racecourse began 11 years ago more than £10,000 has been donated to the Shakespeare Hospice through unused beer tokens and donations.

And organisers hope to raise even more at this year’s event on Friday July 7 and Saturday July 8.

There will be nearly 100 real ales on offer along with a choice of 30 different ciders and perries.

The festival will run between 12pm and 11pm on Friday and 11am to 11pm on Saturday and there will be a free shuttle bus running to and from Stratford train station.

Tickets cost £10 including a souvenir glass and £5 of beer or cider tokens.
