THE 12th Wedmore Real Ale Festival saw beer lovers dress up as the Blues Brothers and raise their glasses to another successful event.

Many visitors donned dark glasses and hats to celebrate the movie theme of the festival.

The festival has raised and donated more than £76,000 to charity in the past 11 years and this year it generated more than £13,000, with funds still being collected.

Last year organisers split the money between 17 different local charities and they hope to do the same this time around.

The event, which ran throughout the whole of last weekend, included a hog roast, barrels of beer and great entertainment with music from bands and DJs.
