The Rochdale Beer Festival returns for its second outing in the Great Hall at Rochdale Town Hall.
The festival is a collaboration between the local CAMRA branch, The Flying Horse Hotel, The Baum, The Regal Moon, and Rochdale Town Centre Management.
The event is in aid of the Mayor’s Charity appeal. Last year over £4,000 was raised for the Mayor’s chosen charities.
Committee member Jon Hudson said: “We are hoping to considerably increase the amount raised for charity this year as last year we incurred a number of initial set up costs.
"This event really adds to the town centre and after the success of the first event we have upped the number of beers available to over 100.
"It’s also fitting that in the birthplace of co-operation, local businesses and CAMRA come together to organise such a great event.”
Mark Foxley, of Town Centre Management, added: “We are looking forward to the second festival being even bigger and better with over 100 real ales and ciders.
"Over 1,500 people visited last year, and responsibly enjoyed the fine ales and ciders on offer, along with raising funds for local charities.
"None of this would be possible without the sponsors and the help of the volunteers, a big thanks to all.”
