KIDWELLY Beer Festival is back with a bang.

The annual event is set to return to this weekend, with plenty of fermented fun for everyone.

With a great range of beers, ciders and lagers available, there will be something new for everyone to try. All sourced from local breweries, the festival prides itself on supporting Welsh businesses.

Now in its seventh year, organiser Jen Brown expressed her delight at the festival's ongoing success.

She said, "We are so excited as the terrific turnout of last year has meant that the festival will now take place over two days rather than one."

Keeping it in the family, The Food Corner is headed up by Star chef columnist and Jen's sister Anna. She will provide visitors with a mouth watering selection of cheeses and home-cooked ham. Washed down with a cold Welsh beer afterwards, she said it will make it the perfect day out.

Jen encouraged everyone to try out what the family describes as the "app of the century" — or for those not so smart phone savvy, Anna's Pork Pie.

"Our abbreviation and little play on words will hopefully grab our younger visitors' attention," Jen said.

The Groucho Club Jazz Band will provide entertainment on Friday evening, while Retro Groove will blow you away with blues tunes on Saturday night.

With an entry fee of just £3, each visitor will get a free glass with their ticket, and all proceeds will go towards its host, The Princess Gwenllian Centre.

Located a stone's throw away from the train station, the centre is the ideal setting for visitors travelling from further afield.

Chairman of the centre, Brian Rees said "The Beer Festival's success keeps building year after year, which is brilliant for the centre and the community. We are really looking forward to hosting again."

The fun begins at 5pm on Friday, and 2pm on Saturday.
