A BRAND new beer festival is set to take place at one of the Lake District's major tourist hotspots this autumn.

Four venues in the popular town of Ambleside will be hosting the three-day Amblefest event from Friday, September 30.

The event will be hosted by The Flying Fleece, The Giggling Goose, The Tap Yard, and The Apple Pie, which surround the historic Bridge House in the town.

The Tap Yard posted on social media:

"There will be more than 40 different craft beers served across 3 days from Northern Breweries like S43 (Durham), Alpha Delta (Newcastle) and Carnival (Liverpool).
"Enjoy a multitude of cask ales, ciders, and even tank-fresh beers!

"Throughout the weekend there will be live music from the likes of Kendal Acoustic Mod, The Moonshine Shakers, Fiona Music in the Lakes, and many, many more.

"There will be lots of great street food choices – gourmet burgers, homemade pies, wood-fired pizzas, and a Hog Roast!"
