The Continental has been drunk dry after another successful real ale and cider festival.

Down on South Meadow Lane drinkers enjoyed a wide selection of beers, ciders and perrys as well as a mix of music and food.

A hog roast was put on and crowds enjoyed the Saturday afternoon sunshine as the weather cleared and Preston celebrated one last gasp of summertime before Autumn sets in.

Co-owner of the continental, Jeremy Rowlands, said: “It’s not been quite as manic as previous years but it’s been busy as always and a great mix of ales for people to try.”

Extra parking was put on at the sports club across the road to ensure the crowds could get to the venue.
