Programme holders at next week’s River Festival can enjoy a free pint at The Three Crowns in Chippenham.

Father and son Steve and Tom Jenner, who took over the pub in The Causeway in June, are holding their second beer festival in conjunction with the event.

Steve said: “We have already had one beer festival at the same time as the folk festival and it went really well, so we are holding this one to coincide with the river festival.

“We have spoken to the organisers and arranged for all programme holders to receive a voucher which they can exchange for a pint at the bar.”

The beer festival will see a choice of up to 18 real ales, 12 ciders and four perries on sale, with discount for members of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).

The event will run during the bank holiday weekend from Friday, August 27 to Monday, August 30.
