Real ale and music fans will soon be raising a glass to the Lichfield Winter Beer Festival. The event, organised by Lichfield Arts, takes place at the Guildhall on January 27 and 28. It will feature a range of real ales and traditional ciders, as well as live music from 3’s Company and Last Orders. Lichfield Arts chairman Jeff Fowler said: “This is a wonderful community event enjoyed by young and old and a great way to get rid of those post Christmas blues.” Tickets are £2 for entry before 6pm or £3 afterwards.
