The Continental celebrates its 12th real ale festival with three days of glorious weather.

Temperatures sweltered as the pub was packed with punters eager to sample more than 200 ales and ciders.

Many were locally produced ales, coming from across the county and further afield.

There was lots of live music on the Friday and Saturday, plus traditional morris dancers entertained the crowds.

It was the first time a second bar had been added at the Conti and this helped reduce the queues for a refill.

Local photographer Alison Bailey was down at the event and captured these pictures.
