Wedmore Real Ale Festival will be held this weekend, with dozens of good causes set to benefit.

Beer-lovers will gather at the village hall in Cheddar Road from Friday to Sunday, sampling 65 varieties of real ale.

There will also be more than 20 ciders on offer as well as wine, prosecco and some delicious food.

This year’s fancy dress theme is based on the London Underground so visitors are urged to attend in costumes inspired by the capital’s trains and stations.

An auction will be held on Sunday while the beer bucket challenge returns and will see brave participants soaked in cold beer for charity.

Last year’s festival raised £17,500 for almost 20 local causes, including the playing fields committee and the village’s football club.

The event will run from 7pm to midnight on Friday, 11am to midnight on Saturday and 11am-4pm on Sunday.

Evening entry to the festival is priced £5.
