The 1st St Neots Scouts will host their annual Beer at the Hut Festival in the town, which opens at 4pm on April 11.

The Beer at the Hut celebrations will be at the Scout Hut on Bedford Street in St Neots, and everyone is invited.

Cllr Robert Simonis, Mayor of St Neots, and Cllr Richard Slade, Deputy Mayor of St Neots, will officially open the festival.

They'll be joined by the two main sponsors of the event - The Three Horseshoes and Goldstraw Goldsmiths.

The festival is set to have 14 cask beers, five ciders, eight gins, and an array of wines, as well as non-alcoholic options.

There will also be a delicious BBQ which will be run by Chimera Explorers.

On April 11, Beer at the Hut will be open from 4pm - 10:30pm. On April 12 and April 13, it will be open from 12pm - 10:30pm. Entry is free all weekend.

On April 13, from 12pm - 5pm, there will be fire lighting and paracord bracelet making, as well as biscuit decorating, magic shows and balloon modelling.

Since 2015, the 1st St Neots Scouts have been putting on a great weekend with Beer at the Hut, and have even managed to raise just under £18,000 over the years.

Adam Wright, Lead Volunteer of 1st St Neots Scouts, said: "We're thrilled to see the community come together to support our Scouts and their endeavours.

"Beer at the Hut is not just a beer festival; it's a testament to the spirit of community and generosity that defines our town."

All of the proceeds from the Beer at the Hut festival will go towards supporting the initiatives and activities of the 1st St Neots Scouts.
