A BEER festival which last year raised more than £3000 for an amateur rugby club is to be held again.

Taking place between February 7 and February 8 at Aireborough RUFC in Yeadon, the festival - held in cooperation with Coopers of Guiseley- will feature a selection of more than 20 real ales and ciders and a wide selection of gin.

Organised especially to coincide with the Six Nations Rugby, it will also give attendees the chance to watch important games.

Beer festival organiser Rob Rattray said: “Aireborough RUFC has always been a community club with a thriving junior section, and we always look forward to welcoming new people.

“The beer festival not only provides the chance for new people to join us and celebrate great rugby with great beer, but it also unites the community and raises vital funds for the club.”

Aireborough RUFC chairman Graeme Forster added: “After the success of last year’s beer festival, I am delighted that Rob and the team have decided to organise another one this year.”

Doors to the beer festival will open at 6 pm on Friday, February 7 and close at 11 pm, before reopening at 1 pm on Saturday, February 8 and ending at 11 pm.

Entry costs £5 and includes a glass, 2 beer tokens and a program, with additional tokens available at 5 for £5. Visit @aireboroughrufc on Facebook.
