An open gardens event is coincinding with a summer beer and cider festival in Hunningham this weekend (June 14 and 15).

Five villagers are hosting open gardens events in aid of the National Gardens Scheme on both days, while there will be a plant sale, art exhibition and sale of homemade cakes and hot drinks at St Margaret’s church.

Refreshments will also be available at Hilltop Farm over the two days, which is at the same time hosting a summer beer and cider festival, which will feature locally-brewed drinks, a pig roast, barbecue, cocktails, funfair, ice cream and face painting. Live music will be provided by The Peas on the Saturday from 3pm and 6pm and on the Sunday from 2pm and 4pm, as well as by DMT on the Saturday from 8pm. There is camping available onsite.

Entrance to the beer festival (11am to 8pm) costs £2 in advance or £4 on the door. To book, call 632978 or visit
