HADLEIGH'S first ever beer festival gets underway tomorrow and organisers are hoping for a bumper turnout.

The Hadleigh United Supporters Club-organised event is being held from 11am to 11pm at the football club, in Tinkers Lane.

Organiser Andy Grimsey has been trying to get a beer festival up and running in the town for the past five years.

He said: "I just feel there's niche market for this kind of thing in Hadleigh. A lot of hard work has gone into it and we want it to be a success."
