Rugby CAMRA’s 33rd Beer Festival opens today (Friday) with a selection of British beers and ciders as well as ales from all the Rugby breweries.

Rugby CAMRA’s Steve Heighton said: “We have tried to bring new beers to the festival but also have all three local breweries - Atomic, Dowbridge and Kendricks - all who have brewed special ales just for the festival, which is a real bonus to drinkers who like to support local businesses.

“For the first time we also have a new draught cider which is also local as it was matured in Winwick.”

The festival is being held at Arnold Hall and opens at 2pm on Friday and 11am on Saturday where there is live music in the evening.
