A World Food Fayre and CAMRA Ale Trail is set for Letchworth – one of few events that will go ahead, having been adapted for the current social distancing guidelines.

Love Letchworth, with support from the Heritage Foundation and North Herts District Council, has organised the event ahead of National Cask Ale Week – which runs from September 24 to October 4.

All the real ale pubs, bars and hotels across Letchworth, Willian and Norton will be offering a range of guest ales and ciders to supplement their normal beers/drinks over the weekend.

Visitors are invited to sensibly visit and try the range.

CAMRA North Herts will be running a treasure hunt style quiz over social media and online during Cask Ale Week with the answers only being available at the participating pubs.

The pubs themselves will be providing an array of prizes for the winners.

Those taking part are Khoi Khoi BAR and VINO, Crafty’s Beer Shop, Three Horseshoes Pub, Willian, Garden City Brewery, Arena Tavern, The Broadway Hotel, The Platform, Letchworth, The Three Magnets, The Fox at Willian, The Three Horseshoes, Norton and The Two Chimneys.
