The club’s activity organiser, Bob Godsell, said that the Lions are looking forward to welcoming visitors to the festival.

“We have a great range of drinks available and would like to thank all our barrel sponsors as well as Rooster’s brewery for helping source beer for us.

“We have a great starter offer for £12 of a branded glass plus tokens for three pints, so come and enjoy a social pint or two with friends, as well as some brilliant entertainment.”

Doors open at 5pm at Knaresborough House on the Friday night and the public can look forward to a bumper range of 24 beers, ranging from local favourites Rooster’s, Daleside and Turning Point, to beers spanning the country from Nottinghamshire down to Cornwall.
