Punters basked in the sun, sampled carefully chosen beers, tucked into a hog roast and enjoyed live music at the Maidenhead Beer and Cider Festival over the weekend.

The festival, organised by Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA),, ran from Thursday to Saturday and had 130 beers on tap from across the UK and 42 ciders.

Children and non-drinkers had plenty to enjoy including a chocolate stall, a barbecue and a variety of music ranging from the Maidenhead Concert Band to punk band On Trial UK.

"We try to be family-friendly and encourage people to bring their kids along," said Stephen Goodall of CAMRA's Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead branch.

"We've had more people than last year. The weather's definitely helped because it was pretty poor last time."

Robin Clarke, 56, from Cranbrook Drive said: "The thing I love about Maidenhead Beer Festival is we get the chance to meet up with people we've not seen for a while.

"You never get any trouble at a beer festival, it's all just families having fun."
