Keen local ale and cider drinkers will be able to raise their glasses once again for the annual Willenhall Beer Festival.

A wide range of ales from the Black Country and across the country will be on offer for visitors to the festival, which is in it's second year.

Visitors will be able to enjoy live music and a selection of around 30 ales and ciders as well as live music throughout April 20 to 22 at 442 Bar and Grill, Aspray Arena in Noose Lane.

The event made it's debut last year and will have a selection of cider on offer from Scotland, Somerset and Wales. It is also the first birthday for Willenhall's very own Umpshire Gold that was unveiled last year at the festival.

Live bands are set to play throughout the weekend and food as well as drinks will be on offer.

Supervisor at 442 Bar and Grill Keri Lister said: "For our first festival last year we had a wonderful response from the local community and further a field, many trying ales for the first time.

"We are really excited and looking forward to this years festival and cannot wait to welcome everyone in."

The festival will be held from 5pm to midnight on Friday (April 20), midday to midnight on Saturday and midday until 10pm on Sunday.
