CIRENCESTER Beer Festival returns to the historic Corn Hall at the end of this month.

The Corn Hall will once again be transformed into a Cotswold bierkeller for the third Cirencester Beer Festival on Friday and Saturday September 27 and 28.

It runs from 7pm to 11pm on the Friday and 11.30am to 11pm on Saturday, providing a tempting line up of local beers from Cirencester and the surrounding area, Northern Ireland, Wales and a tiny micro brewery in Scotland.

The Festival will also provide a good selection of ciders as well as a gin bar and food from Made By Bob, the restaurant leading up to the Corn Hall.

"We are loving having beer festivals in the Corn Hall and thank everyone for their support," said organiser Augusta Wreay.

"We have an amazing selection of beer barrels lined up and a great live music itinerary for both Friday and Saturday including the Shadow Monkeys, the Will Blake Band and the very local Mitch Potts" .

Early Ale tickets are available online via and can be bought from Made By Bob, Diversitea Cafe in the Corn Hall and the Kings Head Hotel, next door.
