Previously a twice-a-year staple of the city’s events calendar the ale and cider festival is going back to Autumnal roots.

Following the success of the summer festival the pub in South Meadow Lane, Preston, is putting on the 18th installment of its popular event.

A spokesman for the pub said: “We’re waving goodbye to Summer 2017 with the return of our most popular event, not to mention one of the most popular events on Preston’s social calendar.”

Two beer halls have more than 200 cask ales and ciders, plus keg ales, to try.
