Martin Bate, beer festival organiser, said: “Making the first tranche of tickets available reminds us the festival is now only four months away.

“We so excited to be working with St Edmundsbury Cathedral again to stage what promises to be our biggest and best yet.

“We’re working hard with our charity partners, including St Nicholas’s Hospice, Women’s Royal Army Voluntary Corps, Bury Theatre Royal and other local fund-raisers, to ensure we have another successful year.
