Ruddfest 2016 was another runaway success, with hundreds of thirsty punters flocking to the village in search of the 150 beers and ciders on offer (not to mention a fair few gins).
The Friday and Saturday nights were especially well-attended with all four venues – The Green, White Horse, Frame Breakers and Victoria Tavern – packed to capacity.
In between tipples, festival-goers were entertained by a variety of live acts, including a line-dancing performance on Thursday night.
Saturday afternoon saw the Knights of Nottingham touring the village on their magnificent horses, whilst a bouncy castle on The Green and a Family Fun Day at The White Horse on Sunday kept the kids happy.
Peckish punters were also spoilt for choice, with food options including BBQs, Indian snacks and curries, home-made pizzas and beer-inspired sausages.
Chief festival organiser, John Noble of the Three Crowns and Bar Six, comments: ‘We may not have had the best weather this year – except for the Sunday which was scorching! – But what a fantastic event Ruddfest 2016 was.
“We even ran out of beer on The Green on Saturday night! Thanks to everyone who attended and helped organise the festival – bring on Ruddfest 2017.“
Save the date: Ruddfest 2017 will take place from Thursday 1 to Sunday 4 June 2017.
