King's Lynn hotel toasts beer festival return
A beer festival is returning to Lynn after a two year break following the pandemic.
The Stuart House Hotel will be toasting the event's return which has been running for 25 years.
In that time it has raised tens of thousands of pounds for local charities.
For Dave Armes, owner of the venue, this will be the last beer festival he is running in co-operation with King’s Lynn Vancouver Round Table due to the fact he is moving on.
The festival will have many ales and ciders with outdoor seating and live music and is raising money for the West Norfolk Autism Group (WNAG).
The WNAG has been set up by a group of parents and autistic people to help support local families whose lives are affected by autism.
Their aim is to provide activities which are inclusive and accessible that take place in a relaxed and supportive environment.
They have already had one fantastically successful outing to Pensthorpe and their aim is to hire venues exclusively, so that autistic families can be together enjoying family time, which is not often possible.
They will be organising activities such as swimming, bowling, sensory and soft play, cinema trips, gym hall, cycling, skating and trampolining.
Since Covid-19 lockdowns began, autistic families have become even more isolated.
They hope to remove barriers to isolation by encouraging members to engage socially and interact with others whilst enabling them to become physically active again and mental and physical well-being are at the core of what they do.
The event is at the Stuart House Hotel on Thursday, July 28, from 5pm-11pm and Friday, 29 July, and Saturday, 30 July, from midday to11pm
