Beer festival brings in the crowds

The Hull CAMRA Real Ale and Cider Festival, at Holy Trinity Church

The Hull CAMRA Real Ale & Cider Festival takes place over the next two days. But make sure you're on your best behaviour - it's in a church!

It's the second year the event's taken place in Holy Trinity Church and it will be the biggest in the festival's 35-year history - after organisers doubled the beer order.

Such was the popularity of last year's event, beer lovers drank the church dry, hours earlier than expected. Now organisers have responded to the demand. The festival will now include 120 real ales, 25 ciders and 16 world beers.

Revd Matt Woodcock, Holy Trinity's minister, says they are delighted to host the festival again. "Last year's festival generated an incredible atmosphere and buzz in the church and we made a whole load of new friends who have never been inside Holy Trinity before."
