The Festival of Beer, which is based at Blackpit Brewery in Buckingham, will return between September 3-5, with a huge list of drinks, DJs and comics on offer.

The event originally began as a one-day event in 2017, but has seen grown into a popular multi-day festival, with 2021 being the first time it will be on for three days.

Duncan Wheeler, who is the festival director, said: “We’re delighted to be back after a year off last year due to Covid.

"The wide range of on-site activities really sets The Festival of Beer apart from your average boutique festival.

“Whether it’s partying and getting lost in the woods, sit-down dining experiences, recharging with yoga and wellbeing, or taking part in outdoor activities like freshwater swimming, The Festival of Beer is a space to play, indulge, revitalise and make new friends.”

One of the DJs who will be at the festival, Rob Da Bank, added: "The Festival of Beer was definitely one of my 2019 highlights and one of the last festivals I DJed at before lockdown... a perfect mix of lovely people, great installations and spot on beer!”
