Thursday, 10th October 2013 - a beautiful sunny day greeted visitors to the first full day of the Beer Festival
On the left visitors enjoy the sun in the outside area whilst studying and sampling the choice of beers and ciders on offer - on the right the food area in the lower gardens offers a mouth-watering array of high-quality food choices.
The choice of Beers, as usual is staggering and this is only one of the alleyways in the main concourse!
The Cider Stalls and choices are also well received on the first full day of the Festival.
