The festival returns to St Walburge’s Church from Thursday March 27 to the following Sunday.

The festival is an opportunity to spend time in one of Preston’s most iconic buildings and to drink a mind-boggling variety of beers from around the world and enjoying great music.

There is also the opportunity to sample a range food from the festival’s very own catering team.

The organisers are raising funds for the ongoing restoration work of St Walburge’s and also to support a multitude of projects to enhance the use of the Church and Church Hall by the community.

Built and designed in the mid 19th century by architect Joseph Hansom, St Walburge’s has stood through hard times, but the toughest challenge it faces now is staying open.

So come along and enjoy a beer (or maybe even a few) knowing you are helping to maintain a piece of Preston history.
