Garforth Beer Festival will be rolling out the barrel again this weekend - and TVs will be on for Leeds United’s play-off final match.

The popular event will clash with the Wembley game on Sunday, but drinkers are being assured that it will be screened during the all-day event at Garforth Country Club.

Tickets are £10 and are available from the Aberford Road venue. Organised by the Garforth and District Lions, spokesman Mark Dobson is hoping ale enthusiasts will still be attending. He said: “There are several wide-screen TVs in the premises all of which will be showing the game, so there’s no excuse not to do both!”

Yorkshire breweries will be serving cask ales, but there will be also be lagers, wine and Prosecco available. Local bands are also being booked to play, while two food vendors will be serving pizza and German sausages.

The event will be held from 12 noon to 9pm. No children or dogs are permitted. Funds raised on the day will be ploughed back into events in the town organised by the District Lions.

The summer event was previously held in the town’s Miners’ Welfare Hall, but due to interest, made the switch to Garforth Country Club venue last year, instantly doubling its potential capacity.

Mr Dobson said: “Last year was year one [at the country club] and there was lots to learn. We want to make it bigger and better and more accessible. Hopefully we will get the weather.”
