A village pub will be hosting its 8th annual beer festival this May bank holiday weekend.

The Greyhound in Botesdale will be offering over 30 real ales and ciders during the festival from May 4-7.

Last year, over 1,200 people passed through the doors over the four days and consumed 4,000 pints of beer, making this one of the biggest independent pub festivals in East Anglia which champions the small brewer.

Among the ales and ciders on offer from local brewers will be Wolf, Buffys, Grain and Earl Soham.

The pub will also be repeating the champagne bar from last year.

On Friday, the festival opens at 5pm with live music at 9pm by united reggae band.

On Saturday, the festival begins at noon with a buskers session at 4pm, followed by live music at 9pm with local band Back Street.

On Sunday, doors open at noon with brother and sister duo Sam and Daisy from 2.30pm and Bungay-based Soulko from 9pm.

On Monday, duo Strapt 4 Cash will perform. There will also be a hog roast every evening.
