Food, beers and live music will be the order of the day as a popular beer festival returns to an award-winning Cornish farm next month.

The Kilhallon Cow Pie & Beer Festival will be staged at James Kittow Butcher & Grazier’s Kilhallon Barn near Par on Saturday October 23 from noon until 10pm.

Beer lovers are invited to try a selection of more than a dozen special real ales and Jah Hemmings from Moor to Sea Food Company will also be creating mouth-watering pies to enjoy.

Organisers have said there will also be a dash of live music during the evening.

The festival will be raising money to support Cornwall Air Ambulance and two farming help charities, Addington Fund, and the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution.

Organiser of the event James Kittow, Cornwall’s current Farmer of the Year said: "We’ve had a very busy summer of foodie events held at our own venue on the farm, Kilhallon Barn.

"We are really looking forward to welcoming everyone along to enjoy a great afternoon and evening at the Kilhallon Cow Pie & Beer Festival to round off the year.

"Chef Jah will be rustling up some cracking food using local produce, including our own beef reared on the farm and there will be cider, lager and other drinks available for those who are not real ale aficionados.

"Last year’s event was a complete sell out, so it’s worth getting a ticket before they all go.

"Most importantly it will be supporting three very worthy charities."

Tickets are on sale online and cost £5 which includes a special festival glass, children are welcome and under 16s do not require a ticket.
