A NORTH Cumbria pub is to hold a beer festival this weekend.

The Stone Inn, in Hayton, near Brampton, will kick off the festivities at 6pm on Friday, along with an array of live music.

Jeff Alcock, organiser of Hayton Beer Festival, told the News & Star: "It's an annual event we've been doing for the last six years at the Stone Inn.

"We will have 10 different types of beers from across England, plus four types of cider.

"There will be eight local artists/musicians performing during the weekend."

The beer festival will end on Sunday night.
