John Atkinson, Bailiff of Warwick Court Leet, said: “Now in its fifth year, our Beer, Cider and Music Festival is the fundraising highlight of our year and has attracted visitors from all over the country.

“For our summer festival this year, we’re delighted to bring it into the heart of the town and hold it in Pageant Gardens at The Court House on both Friday evening and throughout Saturday.”

The Court Leet has also held winter beer festivals at the Lord Leycester Hospital with all proceeds going towards the renovation and maintenance of the site.

This week the Court Leet presented a £5,000 cheque to the Lord Leycester Hospital team. The money was raised at February’s beer festival.
