Anyone thinking of attending CAMRA's Dewsbury & Heavy Woollen District Beer Festival this week will have no problem locating the venue.

Still shrouded in white sheeting (no jokes about ghost towns please!), the town hall buildings have never been such a prominent landmark, and whilst I can only speculate as to what's happening to the exterior, inside it's all about Yorkshire ale!

Approximately 70 beers from around the county (full list on the festival website) will be available from this afternoon until Saturday night and will be accompanied by a wide variety of entertainment including local guitar heroes Ken Senior & Dave Clayton (in one or two of their various guises) and touring Australian singer-songwriter Emaline Delapaix.
