PICTURE GALLERY: Cheers to the beers at Eastbourne festival

Hundreds of people attended the annual Beer and Cider by the Sea Festival on the Western Lawns over the Bank Holiday Weekend.

Festival visitors raised a glass or two during the three day event.



Across the weekend both family-friendly sessions and evening events were held with plenty of picnic spots inside and out, live music and the festival offered a tasty selection of more than 100 real ales, ciders and perries to choose from.

The Beers of the World bar stocked a wide selection of international beverages and exotic cocktails were also available along with a variety of wines and soft drinks.
