A MARKET town will come alive over the next fortnight with a series of community events to mark the 30th Baldock Festival.

Kicking off the festivities will be the Baldock Beer Festival on Friday.

There will also be a range of hot and cold, vegetarian and barbecued food on offer.

This is a family event and there will be activities for children from 12pm until 6pm on Saturday and Sunday, including a bouncy castle and face painting.

The beer festival runs from Friday to Sunday at Brandles School, Weston Way, Baldock.
