A beer festival is returning in the shadow of Preston’s tallest spire.

Beer Fest @ Walburges takes place at the iconic church in its church hall.

Running from Friday 11 May to Sunday 13 May the festival is returning after a break in 2017.

It was previously known as the Preston Beer Festival.

More than 70 beers and ciders from across the UK will be on offer – and some closer to home such as the Eagle Crag Brewery in Todmorden.

Live music is proposed for each day with Jam Buddies headlining Friday and Gary and Vera Aspey on the Sunday.
