DUE to popular demand, an extra day will be added to Tynedale’s premier beer festival.

The organisers at Tynedale Beer and Cider Festival announced it will be a four-day event this year, running from June 18 to 21 at Tynedale Park, in Corbridge.

The Friday session will also be extended by starting at 1pm.

The festival will revert back to four days by running on Fathers’ Day on Sunday, June 21.

During the extra day, three tribute bands will play 1970s classic rock as the event will be open between 1pm and 7.30pm.

Tickets for the beer festival are now on sale in various outlets across Hexham and Corbridge, or from the festival’s website at www.tynedalebeerfestival.org.uk.
