4,000 pints is toast to fes­ti­val suc­cess

Macclesfield Express - - HEART OF THE COMMUNITY -

ALE fans drank nearly 4,000 pints at another suc­cess­ful Bolling­ton Beer Fes­ti­val.

Each of the three ses­sions over the two-day event was sold out and rev­ellers got through nearly all of the 44 casks of beer, as well as 500 pints of cider which gave a grand to­tal of 3,880 pints through the week­end.

There was live mu­sic and food at the event which took place at Bolling­ton Arts Cen­tre.

It was the fourth an­nual event and the com­mit­tee has al­ready set a date for next year’s event.

Lee Wain­wright from Bolling­ton Brew­ing Com­pany is one of the spon- sors. He runs the brew­ery and The Vale Inn with wife Kirsten.

Lee said: “It was a very suc­cess­ful event. We had beers from all over the coun­try.

“There was a fan­tas­tic at­mos­phere, with the samba band on the Fri­day and more bands on the Satur­day.

“It’s a great so­cial event for Bolling­ton.”

The fes­ti­val raises money for com­mu­nity groups and char­i­ties who make bids to the com­mit­tee.

Lee said: “We can help groups which may not be able to get fund­ing in other ways. It’s a great way of help­ing peo­ple in Bolling­ton.”
