THERE will be 33 real ales and eight ciders on offer at the ninth Redditch Winter Ales Festival which takes place at The Rocklands Social Club, Headless Cross, next Friday and Saturday (February 5 and 6).

The annual event, organised by the Redditch and Bromsgrove branch of CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale), will showcase a variety of breweries as part of the CAMRA LocAle campaign.

The festival charity will be Troop Aid which was founded in the West Midlands in 2006 and offers ongoing support and welfare to sick and injured troops who need to adjust to being back in the UK.

Many are flown back and given priority treatment at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Selly Oak.

Entry, which includes a commemorative festival glass and programme, is £4.50 and additional tokens for Rocklands members and card-carrying CAMRA members will be included in that fee.

Non-members can find out more about the local CAMRA branch and join if they wish.

There will be live music on the Friday and Saturday evenings and England’s opening Six Nations rugby match will be shown on the big screen.
