A CHARITY beer festival is set to take place in Flintshire this weekend.

Hawarden Charity Beer Festival returns for its second year this Friday evening and into the weekend and looks an occasion not to be missed for all - particularly those who see themselves as alcohol connoisseurs.

People can experience some of the finest local beers, live music and BBQ food whilst you help raise money in the name of Deeside Round Table - a charitable trust helping men aged between 18 and 45 to meet and make friends.

Brainchild of past Round Table member Ralph Small, the Hawarden Charity Beer Festival quickly established itself as a firm favourite with local people and became one of the three main annual charity events supported by Deeside Round Table and Deeside Ladies Circle in order to raise money for local causes and community groups.

The other events are the annual Santa Float and the Queensferry Charity Bonfire Night which have raised in excess of £20,000, all going back into the local community.

This event will take place in the historic Hawarden Institute Hall and will offer over 25 carefully selected real ales, ciders and perries. There will be live music from Friday evening involving talented local bands and singers, and a selection of hot and cold foods available throughout, with profits going to charity. For those abstaining from a little tipple, or driving - soft drinks are also on offer.

There are separate tickets available for three slots of the event - this Friday (August 2) between 6pm and 10.30pm, Saturday (August 3) between 12pm and 5pm and Saturday between 6pm and 10.30pm.

Tickets are priced at £11.25 and can be purchased from https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/hawarden-charity-beer-festival-2019-tickets-54830322972?fbclid=IwAR2V5V63XAUXfOQR5sEN36R_NLtNF54w22FgnIlXwgxcqp5ffGVzRwddXJA
