A hospice, which helps those with life-limiting illnesses, and their families will once again benefit from a beer festival next month.

Organised by Coquetdale Round Table, the Northumberland Beer Festival, in Longframlington, will take place on Friday, June 20, and Saturday, June 21.

After the first event last year, and the success of raising £1,500, the event will once again raise funds for HospiceCare North Northumberland.

It will see a host of beers from across the North East on offer as well as ciders, wine and soft drinks.

The Round Table is also hosting the 25th Rothbury Street Fair on Bank Holiday Monday, May 26, in the village.

An annual fixture on the Coquetdale event calendar, it will see a variety of charity, craft and food stalls along High Street as well as entertainment and more stalls along Church Street.

Rothbury Highland Pipe Band will also be on hand and there will be rides for children, face painting and more.

It runs from 10.30am to 4pm.

The beer festival takes place in Longframlington’s Memorial Hall from 6pm to 11pm on Friday and noon to 11pm on Saturday.

Last year it raised £1,500 for HospiceCare and it is hoped that figure will be smashed this time.

Entry costs £5 and includes a commemorative glass and two drinks tokens.

Saturday afternoon will be child-friendly with face painting and a bouncy castle.

All soft drinks on the day will be free.
