Steve Heighton, from the Rugby branch of CAMRA, which organsied the event, believes it was one of the best in the festival’s history.

He said: “We sold over 3,000 pints to nearly a thousand customers from all over the UK.

“The range of special, new and ‘locales’ kept everyone happy and we even had to restock the ciders, which again were all local to Rugby.”
