Wedmore Real Ale Festival will return to the village in mid-September.

The event will be held from September 14-16 at the village hall in Cheddar Road.

Last year’s festival raised £17,500 for 18 beneficiaries and the festival organisers are hoping to better this total in 2018.

As well as live music, there will be more than 65 varieties of real ale, cider and wine on offer throughout the weekend.

London Tube Stations will be the fancy dress theme for the evening on September 15.

A spokesman said: “This year’s festival will, as always, centre around a fun theme and will include an incredible mix of live music.

“Kindred, one of Wedmore’s popular live bands, will be opening the festival’s live music on Friday night, and Bad Edukation, who brought the house down on the Friday of last year’s festival, will be Saturday’s main act.”

Entry to the festival will cost visitors £5.
