Top quality food will include a BBQ run by the 2nd Reepham Scout Group, a hog roast and stalls from local food producers, as well as a takeaway beer stand (bottles and containers).
More than 20 real ales will be available (TBC) from Norfolk breweries including: Panther, Humpty Dumpty, Buffy’s, Old Slewfoot, Norfolk Brewhouse and Fat Cat (more to be announced), as well as cider from Norfolk Cider (East Norfolk Trading).

Organiser Martin James is also looking to raise money for charities. “CAMRA have kindly given their support in terms of kit for the event,” he said. “I would like to give the money I was going to give CAMRA to a charity and we can also raise money during the event. We will consider any suitable charities.”
It is also planned to have on-site camping available on Stimpson’s Piece over the weekend. Further details can be obtained soon from www.pantherbrewery.co.uk
