THE drinks were flowing at an annual beer festival.

More than 1,200 attended last weekend’s Tynemouth Beer Festival.

The event, which helps raise money for Percy Park RFC and Tynemouth Cricket Club, also donated a percentage of the profit to St Oswald’s Hospice in Gosforth.

Organisers ensured there was plenty of beer and cider on tap, bringing in 30 per cent more than last year after they ran out on the third day.

Rouven Snowdon, who organised the event with Steve Mordue, said: “It was an excellent event really well attended and a great success.

“The live music on both nights went down really well and the weather was decent.”

The festival also had a family theme with various games, a birds of prey display from Whitehouse Farm, and cricket and rugby on the Saturday.
