THE popular annual Phoenix Beer Festival will return next month.

Get ready to raise a glass on Saturday, September 29, at this year’s Cornish-themed event.

The Phoenix said there will be “an excellent selection of beers” on offer, from a variety of West Country breweries, along with top-quality music and entertainment in and around the theatre.

And, to go down nicely with the choice ales, there will be a barbecue and, of course, some Cornish pasties.

“The afternoon session will be family-friendly - we’ll be embracing the Cornish/ pirate theme with activities for children,” Phoenix staff added. “Dressing up encouraged!

“The evening session is over 18s only.”

The first session will be held at 11.30am–4pm, with the evening fun running from 6pm–10.30pm. For more details or to book tickets, call The Phoenix on 01420 472664 or e-mail [email protected].
