The new management team at The Crispin pub in Denmark Street are inviting people to celebrate with a beer festival that kicks off this Friday.
Austin Hamshere and Emily Ness are beginning their tenure with a four-day festival featuring 12 real ales.
Folk band Smokey Bastard will perform at 8.30pm in the pub on Saturday and all ale will be £2.50 a pint as the festival draws to a close on Monday.
Mr Hamshere said he was looking forward to the event. He said: “They’re a great band and we’re very lucky to get them and they’ve just got back off a tour of Ireland.
“We’ve got a great range of ales this weekend, with the majority a part of the LocAle campaign that promotes local brewers.”
