ST George’s Day was celebrated in style at a Burton brewery as families were out in force for a fun day.
The beer festival and family fun day at Marston’s Brewery, in Shobnall Road, even saw the man himself out to celebrate as Graham Benford dressed as St George with a knights outfit to entertain the crowds.
Other attractions included a vintage car rally and motorcycle display, Shire horses, cooper Mark Newton displaying barrel making, birds of prey, a petting zoo with snakes, tarantulas, lizards and cockroaches, face-painting, a bouncy castle and balloon making as well as beer tent with a dozen ales on offer.
Music was also provided by live band Three Less Than Five, with brewery supervisor Neil Jackson leading the vocals and refreshments were available throughout the day.
A brewery spokesman said: “It went really well and the sun really helped us.
“I think St George was looking over us as it was a lovely day. We had lots of people attend and the numbers were definitely higher than last year.
“We had lots happening and going on so it was really good.”
