Championing all things local is the aim of a beer, cider and live music festival taking over Hilltop Farm in Hunningham.

The third annual Beer and Cider Festival runs from Friday June 10 to Sunday June 12.

It will be a weekend of live music – from local bands including The Peas, The Folly Brothers, Ellipsis, Jamie Knight and many more.

A selection of local beers and ciders will be served in the beer tent, celebrating the region’s best locally produces ales and ciders– as well as cocktails and fizz. Local food will be served too, with a barbecue and hog roast, and Fresh Rootz will be there to cater for vegans and veggies.

Sheep dog and duck displays will provide additional fun and games - along with ferret racing. For youngsters, there will be a play area, face painting and a chance for all to enjoy Hilltop’s playground, café and farm shop.

Day tickets or camping tickets can be purchased online with ‘glamping’ facilities – wood cabins and bell tents –for those who fancy upgrading to some luxury.

Hilltop Farm’s Lotte Ellis said: “This will be a great weekend celebrating the Midlands’ finest beers, ciders, locally sourced food and live music. It will be a fabulous family friendly weekend with lots of entertainment for everyone.

The Folly Brothers will kick everything off on the Friday evening and are just one of the many local bands that will be playing over the three days.”

Tickets range from £5 for a day ticket to £40 for the full camping weekend. Tickets bought in advance are currently being offered at half price. Under 12s go free.

Hilltop Farm can be found on the Fosse Way in the village of Hunningham, near Leamington.
