THE finest beers in the West Country will be on offer – and you could be there as the Mercury is offering four pairs of tickets to lucky readers.

Claverham Beer Festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a three-day event starting on June 29.

The Yeo Valley Lions organised event has attracted hundreds of visitors over the years as it has served 297 different beers and ciders since its 2002 debut.

But as well as providing drinkers with a merry evening, the festival has always had charity at its heart with more than £50,000 raised for Great Western Air Ambulance over the years.

And the festival will support local businesses, with Butcombe Brewery supplying the flavoursome beer.

It opens at 7.30pm on June 29 and on June 30 starts at 7.30pm in Claverham Village Hall in Bishops Road. The July 1 afternoon session is already a sell-out.

Tickets, priced £7, are available on the door but booking in advance is advisable by emailing
