This year’s Beer and Cider Festival is on the second weekend in June at Oldfields Sports and Social Club. For the first time, the event runs over two days, with an Open Mic night on the Friday evening (June 6th), before the main event on the Saturday.
Tickets for the beer festival are £7.50 which includes a commemorative beer glass, a programme with taster notes, quiz with prizes of free beer and admission to the Friday night open mic session. Admission to the Open Mic Night alone is £2.50, or free for performers, who will receive free beer festival tickets (two per act) or a free drink on the night.
Ticktes are available from Oldfields Sports and Social Club or Lions Club members Steve Shields on 01889 565522 or Simon Smith on 01889 566080. Anyone interested in performing at the Open Mic or on the Saturday afternoon between 2 and 8pm should contact Gary Hudson of Uttoxeter Lions on 07974 168818.

The live rock and pop covers band Upfront who proved a roaring success on their two previous appearances at the beer festival will again headline the Saturday night in the marquee, after an afternoon of acoustic music.
