Please come along and if you want to help out, even better! This Link show you the poster and T-Shirt design : Barrel Race Barrel Race
Fancy winning a nine-gallon barrel of ale this Easter weekend? Or how about a spot of egg-jarping? The Feathers Inn Beer Festival begins on Good Friday with over 20 real ales, from local breweries, large and small. Hand-pulled or straight from the barrel, there will be an ale or cider to suit every drinker’s palate. Easter Monday sees the annual famous Hedley-on-the-Hill Barrel Race. Teams of three competitors will once again struggle up Billy Faill’s field carrying an empty beer keg, before making a dash for the finish line at the Feathers Inn in an attempt to win the prize. Don’t miss this unique local event. With a children’s decorated egg competition and the Easter Bonnet parade, it looks like being lots of fun for all the family – and a great day out to boot. Rhian and Helen, the Feather’s new land lords, will be serving fresh, seasonal, local food from then onwards.
