With England out of the World Cup there's now absolutely no reason to spend next Saturday afternoon in front of the telly - and whilst the Monkey Club in Armitage Bridge has been as good a place as any to enjoy the football, it's wonderful annual beer festival is best enjoyed outdoors.

With around forty beers, including a special from Brass Monkey in aid of the Air Ambulance Charity, a barbeque and plenty of live entertainment to savour, we just need a repeat of this weekend's weather to complete the picture and provide the perfect antidote to England's abject performance at this summer's finals.

The festival gets under way on Saturday 3rd July at noon concluding at 9pm Sunday.
