Bexhill Rotary Club’s popular Charity Ale & Arty Beer & Music Festival returns to the De La Warr Pavilion again in 2017 for three lively sessions over two days, March 17-18.

The festival attracts ale and arty folk from far and wide and will be the Rotary Club’s 4th. Last year’s festival raised around £3,000 for a variety of charitable causes and one of the organisers of the event, Rotarian Roger Batey, says next year promises to be even better. “The festival offers a wide selection of good and tasty ales to please the most discerning drinker at what is always a well supported and extremely popular event,” he said.

Cheers! Visitors at the Rotary Club of Bexhill Ale & Hearty 2015. SUS-160612-115924001
