The Nags head in Middle Rasen stages its second annual beer festival this holiday weekend.

The CAMRA-listed pub will offer six cask ales and six ciders, plus all its normal beers, around 15 altogether.

Landlord Barry Reeves says there will be many different styles of beers, including dark ales, which are “very popular” in his neighbourhood.

Last year’s event was “very successful” with 700-800 attending over last August Bank Holiday weekend.

But this year’s festival promises to be even bigger and better with more music.

“There’s loads of music,” said Barry.

On Saturday afternoon, there will there will be a Madness tribute band, followed by Motown in the evening. Sunday afternoon starts with an Abba tribute band, followed by Glam Rock and then Blues Brothers in the evening. Monday afternoon features Country & Western.

For children there will be an inflatable pirate ship obstacle course.

There will also be a raffle of a 42-inch tv to raise funds for the village charity fund.

Pub food, including hot dogs and burgers, will be served over the weekend. The festival starts on Saturday at 12 noon and finishes around 5pm on Monday.
