Entrance costs range from £10 for the deluxe option which includes a polycarbonate glass, three half pint beer tokens, beer list and pencil down to just basic entry at £5.

Over the last 26 years, the festival has raised over £336,000 for charity. Last year nearly £22,000 was donated to over 30 good causes.

All the beer is donated by brewers from all over the UK and allows beer and cider lovers to literally raise a glass for charity.
