Ale fans flock to museum’s festival
THE beer will be flowing in Stowmarket tonight as the town’s 14th annual beer festival kicks off.
This year’s event, held once again at the Museum of East Anglian Life, is the biggest ever with more than 60 local brews on tap over the course of four days.
The festival draws in thousands of people every year and is held in association with CAMRA, the Campaign for Real Ale.
Speaking earlier this evening, collections manager Lisa Harris said everything was “ready to go”.
She said: “The volunteers are all lined up and ready to serve. We’ve got people from CAMRA helping out – because without them we couldn’t hold the festival – but we also have many of our normal people who volunteer at the museum throughout the year.

“It’s the 14th and the biggest (festival) yet. There’s definitely plenty of different brews and a number of new brews that haven’t been out for long so many people will be able to taste them for the first time.
After opening at 6pm tonight, the festival opens again tomorrow from 12noon to 11pm, then again from 11am to 11pm on Saturday and 12noon to 3pm on Sunday.
