Mayfield Beer Festival 2016

beer-barrelsIt’s finally here! We have details of the first Mayfield Beer Festival that will be held at the Memorial Hall on Friday June 10th and Saturday June 11th and admission is free!

As the cornerstone of the village’s celebrations for the Queen’s 90th Birthday weekend, this event raising funds for the hall is set to be a popular one. We have at least 15 beers and ciders from Burton Bridge Brewery and other local microbreweries giving a huge range of choice.
