Fakenham’s beer and gin festival is set to return for its 10th edition.

The festival will take place on March 24 and 25 at the Fakenham Community Centre. The event will raise money for the centre and community charity First Focus - and will be the first two-day event since 2019.

The festival will feature 25 beers, ciders, Black Shuck gin and spirits, food and live music. 

Mark Banham, the event’s chairman, said: “We are pleased to return following the pandemic, and the 10th edition is worth celebrating.

“We are delighted to support these charities, and are hoping some breweries will create one-off beers for the event.”

The not-for-profit festival means once the running costs have been met, all the remaining funds will be split in half and given to the charities. 

Money is raised through ticket sales, a raffle, and donation buckets.

Entry will cost £14, which includes an event glass and tokens for three pints of beer or two gins. Entry for those who do not want the glass or tokens is £2, and entry is £5 after 6pm.
