THE eighth Seend beer festival takes place on Saturday.

The event has grown year by year and last year attracted 800 visitors, raising more than £2,000 for Seend Community Centre.

On Saturday there will be 35 beers and eight ciders to try.

The festival is from 12noon to 11pm and entry is £5 which includes a glass and a beer token.

There will be a pig roast and families are encouraged to visit in the afternoon.

Live bands will be playing throughout the day.

The performers are Devizes based singer Claire Covington, who has performed at Devizes Beer Festival; Black Sheep, a Dorset based folk band, who played at Seend last year and Wiltshire based Carnaby Street which plays 60s mod and new wave music.
