A decade of celebrating music to your beers
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.
