POPPLETON Beer Festival has secured the support of Hethertons Solicitors for the third year in a row.

Organisers of the annual festival have raised a glass to thank the York and Boroughbridge-based law firm.

The law practice has sponsored a barrel at the popular event, which raises money for local youth football clubs.

This year’s event will take place at Poppleton Junior Football Club in Millfield Lane, York on the 15 – 16 June 2018 and is expected to attract hundreds of people.

The festivals gates will open from 4pm-11pm on the Friday, and from midday-11pm on the Saturday, allowing visitors to spend the day sampling more than 60 of the best local beers and ciders including Yorkshire Sparkle, Two Hoots Ale and Golden Pippin.

Simon Nellar, Director at Hethertons Solicitors, said: “Poppleton Beer Festival continues to grow year-on-year, so we are delighted to be supporting this fantastic local event for a third time in 2018."

“This year’s festival has a brilliant line-up and looks set to offer a huge number of beers and ciders for visitors to enjoy. I hope our sponsorship helps the organisers put on another incredible event.”

The festival has also become well recognised for its wide range of food and refreshments. To book your tickets for the Poppleton Beer Festival, please visit www.popbeerfest.co.uk
