Next weekend, Southport plays host to the 12th Sandgrounder Beer Festival. It opens at 6pm on Thursday 22 September and at midday on Friday and Saturday; it closes at 11pm on all three days. Entry is free to CAMRA members (£1 on Friday after 6pm), and £3 to non-members (£4 on Friday after 6pm). The extra pound on Friday evening is for the local band Gallimaufry who went down rather well last year. They play a wide range of music from folk to the Beatles, and are not deafening.Just in case you're wondering, a Sandgrounder is a person who was born in Southport. As I was born in a certain city 20 miles to the south, I don't qualify.
Always look on the bright side
