THE seventh Horsforth Beer and Cider Festival got underway yesterday.

Among 68 draught beers on offer at the event was Lost Dog IPA from Horsforth Brewery, the town’s first independent brewery run by local brewer Mark Costello.

The festival at St Margaret’s Church Hall on Church Lane will run from midday until 11pm tonight, unless the bar runs dry before last orders.

Lucy Thornhill, a member of the festival organising committee, said live bands will be playing at the fundraising event.

She added: “Hopefully we should get something like 1,500 people through the doors over the weekend.”

The festival has been organised by St Margaret’s Church to raise funds for the church and for improvement works to St Margaret’s Scout hut. Go to www.horsforthbeerfestival.co.uk
