The Southport Spring Beer Festival is being organised by the Southport Food and Drink Festival. The publicity says it's supported by CAMRA ~ that means we set it up, work on the bar and take it down for them! It's on this Friday and Saturday, 14 to 15 May, in a marquee in the Town Gardens, just in front of the Arts Centre and the opening times are noon to 6.00pm. Beer is £1 per half pint, so it's good value. About 12 to 14 beers will be served from small local breweries.
