A decade of cel­e­brat­ing mu­sic to your beers

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS - By Camilla Good­man camilla.good­man@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

THOU­SANDS of peo­ple flocked to a pop­u­lar fes­ti­val hosted by two neigh­bour­ing pubs at the week­end. The 10th Ley Hill Mu­sic and Beer Fes­ti­val took place from Satur­day, Au­gust 29 to Mon­day, Au­gust 31 in­side and out­side The Swan and The Crown pubs in Ley Hill Com­mon.

This was the 10th year the pubs, that are next door to each other, have joined forces to hold the three-day mu­sic and beer fes­ti­val, which at­tracts thou­sands of peo­ple.

Over the three days, there was live mu­sic from 11 bands, more than 60 real ales and ciders, a pig roast and bar­be­cue and fam­ily at­trac­tions such as face paint­ing.

Owner of The Swan Nigel By­att said: “It went very well and we had some de­cent crowds, es­pe­cially on the Sun­day which was amaz­ing. It was another great event and we’ll be do­ing it again next year.”

There was also a bucket col­lec­tion at the event in aid of the Amer­sham and Che­sham Lions Club. The col­lec­tion is still be­ing counted but it is ex­pected to have made be­tween £800 to £900.
