Organisers of the Seend Beer Festival are urging people to buy their tickets in advance as there is a good chance the event will be sold out.

The festival, on Saturday May 3, is in its 14th year and last year was the first time it had sold out in advance.

Tickets have been on sale in Seend since the beginning of March but go on general sale today.

Richard Todhunter, one of the organisers, said: “We are hopeful we will sell out in advance. People do come from further afield for the festival, including people who plan it around their trips to local campsites.”

The line up of beers is in the process of being finalised and there are likely to be a few more than last year with between 30 and 35 and about six ciders. A pig roast will also be available.

This time there are more live bands with four playing throughout the day. They are Jamie R Hawkins, Phil King, Claire in the Tommunity and A Dig in the Ribs.

Non-beer drinkers can attend and entry is £5, not available in advance. Under 18s can attend but must be accompanied by a paying adult.

The event is the biggest single fundraiser for Seend Community Centre and last year it raised £2,000.

Tickets are £10 from Seend Post Office, the Community Centre, the Brewery Inn at Seend Cleeve or Devizes Books. Online tickets are £11 from the website www.seendbeerfestival.co.uk

why urge people unless there is not a good chance of selling out?

So people do not turn up on the day expecting to get in because there will probably be no tickets available. Therefore.... buy them in advance if you want to get in. I thought it was fairly simple!

if they were not bought in advance, then you could get in.
