Organisers of the Seend Beer Festival are urging people to buy their tickets in advance as there is a good chance it will be sold out.

The festival on Saturday, May 3, is in its 14th year and last year was the first time it had sold out in advance.

Tickets have been on sale in Seend since the beginning of March but went on general sale this week.

Richard Todhunter, one of the organisers, said: “We are hopeful we will sell out in advance. People do come from further afield for the festival.”

The line-up of beers is in the process of being finalised and there will be 30-35 on offer and about six ciders.

There will be four bands: Jamie R Hawkins; Phil King; Claire in the Tommunity; and A Dig in the Ribs.

Non-beer drinkers can attend and entry is £5, not available in advance. Under 18s can attend if accompanied by a paying adult.

The event is the biggest single fundraiser for Seend Community Centre and last year it raised £2,000.

Tickets are £10 from Seend Post Office, the Community Centre, the Brewery Inn at Seend Cleeve or Devizes Books. Online they are £11 at
