Chorley FC manager Matt Jansen said: “This is a long-standing event and provides a great social meeting point for the residents of Chorley. It’s also a good opportunity for local breweries to showcase their products and get themselves known to a wider audience. We’ve plenty going on throughout the weekend including live music and a Twincess charity match. I’d love to see our fans get down and support us - as they have done all season.”

Chairman Ken Wright added: “Our group of volunteers have been working extremely hard to make this event a success. We’ve sourced over 50 real ales from local and regional producers.

The festival is sponsored by Price & Price Building Ltd.
