Beer fest success

ORGANISERS of Portishead Town Football Club’s first beer festival have vowed to make it a regular event.

The club’s inaugural festival on April 27 attracted scores of visitors, raising almost �1,400 for new club facilities.

A spokesman said: “We’ve been talking about organising a beer festival for years but have never got round to it, so holding one as part of our centenary celebrations seemed an ideal time to act.

“It’s been such a success we will almost certainly make it an annual event and we would like to thank all those who supported the event from sponsors and organisers to those who bought tickets.”

The club’s centenary celebrations continue with a Musical Bonanza in a marquee in the Bristol Road grounds on June 2. Portishead Town Band will perform during the afternoon, while popular covers band Spooks will play from 8pm.
