An afternoon of fun, food and live music will light up Honiton Rugby Club’s annual beer festival.

The popular event, which attracted hundreds of people last year, is making a welcome return on Saturday, August 13, from 1pm.

A club spokesman said: “We are raising money towards the building of our new clubhouse extension.

“The exterior is well on its way to being completed – we are hoping for it to be watertight by winter.

“The money we raise from the festival will go towards utilities – such as plumbing, electrics and a new kitchen.

“We are looking forward to another bumper turnout, as previous festivals have always been a big hit with the community.”

The fun will kick off with action from the Dave Turner Cup between Honiton and Sidmouth’s first teams.

Honiton’s second team will then play in a friendly tournament featuring Wyvern Rugby Club.

This is followed by music from live bands, including The Unwanted, 4KD and Bullet.

A barbecue will be blazing throughout the event – offering hearty grub and a selection of local beers and ciders. Previous festivals held by the rugby club have helped raise thousands of pounds.

The spokesman added: “This year’s festival is set to be the best yet, with more rugby, more live music and more beer!”

The free festival takes place at Honiton Rugby Club, at Allhallows Playing Field.

Honiton Rugby Club prides itself on offering something for all ages and providing affordable rugby for all.

The club is currently seeking new volunteers to help out with its junior and senior sections.
