Beer and burger fest in the pipeline

PUBLISHED: 10:12 16 January 2015


Winning an award from a leading brewery has spurred on staff at a Sidmouth pub on to organise a beer and burger festival.

The Anchor Inn was named Heineken’s cask pub of the year and Matt Fudge, whose family have owned it for a decade, decided the announcement would be a great way to start 2015.

He hopes to make it a family-friendly event and is calling on bands and comedians who want to perform to a crowd of as many as 400 people to get in touch.

The festival is scheduled for the bank holiday weekend on May 23 and 24, and will also feature a bouncy castle, a craft area, face painting and a real ale trail.

Entry will be £10 for either day, including a real ale and a burger.

Anyone interested in performing should call the pub on 01395 514129 or find Matt on Facebook.
