HAWORTH Beer Festival is back.

The popular event is returning next weekend after a two-year absence due to the pandemic.

And organiser Kathryn Thornton, director of Bronte Bars & Events, says she is "pulling out all the stops" to make it one of the best.

The festival – now in its tenth year – begins on Friday (April 22) afternoon with a special tasting event for businesses.

Speaker at the 2pm event will be former Leeds Rhinos Women and England rugby league star Danika Priim, who is now a TV pundit.

She will talk about her career and the importance of raising funds for the Motor Neurone Disease Association, and in particular the Leeds Hospitals' Rob Burrow Centre.

Bronte Bars & Events has named the Motor Neurone Disease Association as its chosen charity.

"We invite new and existing business owners to the exclusive afternoon to network with other businesses and enjoy tasting talks with Liberty Wines London and the award-winning Tailors & Drapers Gin of Leeds," said Kathryn.

The beer festival runs from Friday until the Sunday at the Old School Room, in Church Street, Haworth, which is opposite the Bronte Parsonage Museum.
