Event organiser Richard Moller said: “We would like to say a huge thank you for the fantastic support we received from the local community to ensure the festival was yet another amazing success.

“We’re amazed, every year, by how so many come together from Ponteland Rugby Club, sponsors, local businesses, the incredible army of volunteers and helpers and, of course, the many thousands who come along and add to the spirit of the whole event.

“We also offer a huge thank you to Ponteland Cricket Club – without their collaboration and support, the festival would not be the success it has been.

“We’re delighted that the sunshine came out for the event as well, which helped create a great atmosphere.

“After yet another record-breaking year, we’re already making plans for next year’s Ponteland Beer Festival.”
