The Lichfield Winter Beer Festival has been hailed as a record-breaking success.

Organisers Lichfield Arts say greater crowds than ever before turned up to the event at Lichfield Guildhall.

Visitors came from as far as Milton Keynes and Liverpool to sample the real ales and ciders on offer.

Lichfield Arts chairman Rob Tilston said: “The beer festival is a wonderful community event bringing together people from all ages and society – and even more importantly, it bringing much needed visitors to the city.”
