ORGANISERS of a popular beer festival say ticket sales are going strong as they approach the event.

The Hartlepool Round Table Beer And Music Festival will take place at the Borough Hall, on the Headland.

Two days of fine ales and great music are in store on Friday, October 10 and Saturday, October 11.

Every penny of profit raised will go to the organisation’s chosen charities of Hartlepool Families First and Hartlepool Carers.

Round Table member Mark Rycraft said people have been taking advantage of discounted tickets by buying online.

He said: “We have sold lots of tickets online and it is all looking really promising.
“We will be meeting a couple of times a week in the run up to the festival to get everything organised.

“It is shaping up to be just as big as last year.”

The festival will bring together over 50 handpicked real ales, including Britain’s best-known beers and delicious rare ales from small micro-breweries.

A soft drinks and wine bar is also available for those just wanting to enjoy the entertainment.

And the music is proving to be another big draw with a Killers tribute band, Killerz, taking to the stage on the Friday and Bjorn to be Abba performing on the Saturday.

Get tickets for £12.50 per person per evening from Timlins Opticians, Church Street; First Class Shoe Repairs, Middleton Grange Shopping Centre; and Virgin Money, York Road, Hartlepool.

A £2.50 discount is also available by booking online at www.hartlepoolbeerfestival.co.uk.
