A weekend of music, food and booze is coming to the South West next month.

The Newt Beer And Music Festival will take place in North Newton, in Moon Lane, from July 6-8.

Now in its 27th year, the festival will operate two stages covered by two circus big tops.

The festival – near Bridgwater – is broadening its appeal to a wider audience by introducing a dance music and DJ tent featuring a number of artists from the UK’s dance music circuit as 14 acts will perform across the three days.

On the opening night, the headline band is ABBA’s Angels, one of the UK’s best-loved ABBA tribute acts.

There will be a big selection of beers along with great festival food and a range of other entertainment to keep the party going all weekend.

Camping and free parking are available on site.

Tickets, priced £20, can be purchased at
