UP to 60 regional beers and ciders, plus street food and live music are being laid on at the Trowbridge Craft Beer and Cider Festival next month.

The festival is once again being hosted by Innox Mills at the former Bowyers factory in Stallard Street, from Friday, August 27 to Monday, August 30.

DeCanter Mobile bar will provide a range of alcoholic drinks, including gins and wines, plus a selection of soft drinks to make sure no-one is left thirsty.

Set against the backdrop of the historic buildings at Innox Mills, the Festival will be hosted within the courtyard that is set to become the Innox Quarter once development has been completed.

Street food and live music will also be on hand throughout the day and evening sessions to keep the fun atmosphere alive.

The festival is part of the site owners’ plans to foster a vibrant new quarter at the Innox Mills development. Food, drink and leisure will play a big role Innox Mills, where 300 new homes are planned.

Jonathan Dean, director of Innox Mills, said: “Whether catching up with friends during the day or enjoying the evening festival atmosphere, we hope the Craft Beer and Cider Festival gives people in Trowbridge and the surrounding area a chance to experience a taster of what’s to come at Innox Mills, while enjoying some of the best independent beers, ales and ciders from the region along with some of the local musical talent that the area has to offer.

“We’ve even got tasting notes on all drinks available to help our visitors choose what they’d like to try and really make the most of the experience.”

Event sponsors include Hills Waste Solutions and local firm, WebCreationUK.

Leon Millard, chief executive at WebCreationUK, said: “It’s inspiring to work alongside another like-minded group of people looking to be part of the movement going on in and around Trowbridge.
