BEER aficionados flocked to a sports club in Cam on Saturday for its hugely popular beer festival.

Held at Cam Sports Club, the sold-out Millwood Cam Beer Fest is the club's big annual fundraiser and brings in thousands of pounds.

More than 1,000 people secured tickets for Saturday's event - the seventh year in succession it has taken place.

Despite the morning's bad weather threatening to put a dampener on proceedings, everything went off without a hitch and the skies cleared just in time for the evening's entertainment.

James Darby, chairman of the ten-strong organising committee, said that the event had gone "really, really well".

"We have had a lot of positive feedback so it seems that everyone enjoyed themselves," he said.

"For the last three or four years now we have sold out weeks before the day and it seems that it has become a really popular event."

More than 1,000 people were able to get hold of tickets and although the total has yet to be tallied, organisers expect to have raised about £12,000 for the club.

Millwood Cam Beer Fest is the major fundraiser for Cam Sports Club which provides facilities for Cam Cricket Club and Cam Bulldogs Football Club, Cam and Dursley Tennis Club and several skittles teams.

"It is our main source of money to keep the club running," Mr Darby added. "It is vital for the club but it's also great fun and we're glad that so many people enjoy themselves."

For the first year prosecco was sold at the event and proved so popular that stocks ran out halfway through the evening.

Forty-three beers were on tap this year, a slight increase on 2016 while the numbers of ciders - at 25 - stayed at a similar level.

Planning for next year's festival will start in November.
