Cheers! Eastbourne’s ale festival goes down a treat

Beer and Cider by the Sea saw another successful Bank Holiday weekend of real ale, cider and sunshine in Eastbourne.

With scorching weather, more Sussex brewed beer on offer than ever before and incredible entertainment from The Tar Babies and Hot Detroit, this year’s event on the Western Lawns was a soaring success with tickets for Saturday evening selling out in advance.
