Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

ALE fans are set to gather for the an­nual Mac­cles­field Beer Festival next month.

The char­ity event, which is now in its 22nd year and has raised £200,000 for char­ity, will take place at Mac­cles­field Rugby Club on May 6 and 7.

Around 4,000 peo­ple at­tended last year’s event sup­ping 14,000 pints.

This year’s pro­ceeds will be do­nated to Park Lane School, a spe­cial school for chil­dren with learn­ing and phys­i­cal dif­fi­cul­ties, which plans to use the money to build an all-weather play area.

As well as 250 beers, wines, ciders and per­rys on of­fer, there will be live mu­sic, a tombola, raf­fle, bar skit­tles and bal­loon sculp­tures.

Tick­ets are £10 for both of the two evening ses­sions, which start at 7pm, while the Satur­day day time ses­sion for fam­i­lies is free.

Lor­raine Warmer, head­teacher at Park Lane School, said: “We have wanted to cre­ate a wheel chair ac­ces­si­ble play area which our pupils can use all year round for quite some time now, so we’re thrilled to have the sup­port of the Mac­cles­field Beer Festival com­mit­tee and the Mac­cles­field Round Ta­ble.”
