Spending was up at the Trimley Beer Festival as people flocked to enjoy the annual event.

The four-day festival had a new attraction this year, a food festival, as well as 40 beers for people to try, with 30 kegs out at any one time, and six ciders.

Yesterday’s attractions included a full line-up of bands playing on an outdoor stage on the field at the Trimley Sports and Social Club.

The programme included Shotgun Rivals, Remedy, Keep It Secret, Hurricane Alley, The Downsetters and Circa Fall.

Chantelle Betts, assistant manager at the club in High Road, Trimley St Martin, said: “It’s been a very busy weekend – absolutely manic at times. Takings up are on last year, which is excellent.

Planning is already under way for next year’s festival, which will be the ninth, and ideas are already being looked at for new attractions.
