Organisers preparing for the 14th Rippingale Beer Festival are hoping the weather will be on their side.

They have also enlisted the help of volunteers to guard the beer after two barrels were damaged during a break in last year.

From 6pm on Friday there will be live music from 
bands in the area, food, drinks and entertainment for all ages.

The event will raise money for Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance, first responders and other local good causes,

Held at the Jubilee playing fields, in Pinfold Close, visitors to the festival can expect 20 real ales, six ciders, a selection of wines as well as 
soft drinks and teas and coffees.

There will be a barbecue all weekend, activities for children including face painting and a play table, and a car boot sale from mid day on Sunday (£5 per car).

Gail Hyland, a member of the organising committee said: “It’s a big family event 
for villagers and people in 
surrounding villages and towns.

“All the bands give their time for free which helps us raise £1,000 to £2,000 every year for charity.

“We hope the weather will be good, but all of the events are under cover so do come along even if it rains.”

The festival will run from 6-11pm Friday, midday to 11pm Saturday and midday to 4pm Sunday.

Bands playing include Eddie Lunn and Friends, Mullered Mill, HMS Welland - Shanty Singers, Leona Bilby, Dog Goblins and Glass Onion. Entry and parking are free.
