People gathered to take part in Long Ashton’s sixth annual Beer and Cider Festival in the village last weekend.

Festivities were held at the village’s community centre, in Keedwell Hill on Saturday afternoon.

People listened to music, took part in the evening’s entertainment and drank beer, cider and ales made in the area.

Bristol-based 1970s rock band Grizzly And The Bear headlined the event, and people also enjoyed music by singer-songwriters who live in the area – including Long Ashton’s Giles Hughes who performed on the night.

People can be seen with alcoholic drinks made by Moor Beer in Bristol, which won The British Guild of Beer Writer’s Brewer Of The Year award last year.

Also on offer was Croft Ale’s Deep Red, including drinks from The Flying Monk and Goff’s Brewery.

People could also take home a commemorative glass to remember the night by.
