Beer fest and market

The Sir John Cockle pub on Sutton Road, Mansfield is to host a unique combined beer festival and farmers’ style market this weekend.

This is the first time that the pub has held a real ale festival but it wanted to make it something a bit different from having just cask ales and ciders in the pub, so it is using its large car park to host a farmers’ style market on Sunday 10am-2pm.

The beer festival will run from Friday to Sunday.

l Any producer wishing to take a stand at the farmers market or have their produce in the specials board at the pub should call 01623 638023.
