Shropshire Festivals are launching a brand-new event this summer that will turn the best bits about going to the pub in to a beer festival for Shropshire.

 

Shropshire Festival’s owner, Beth Heath, comments, “Following the success of Shropshire Oktoberfest over the last two years, we felt there was a gap in the calendar for a similar event that we could enjoy in the sunshine.
