Hundreds of people visited the third Annual Beer & Cider Festival held at The Bell Inn in Gumley to raise funds for Derbyshire, Leicestershire & Rutland Air Ambulance and GEMS Charity supporting people with cancer.

This year the team from the Bell Inn decided to host various local musical groups to sing during the four day event.  Local acts included, Fingers ‘n’ Fumbs, Hubcap, Anne-Marie, The Tributes & Rachel (a local soul singer).

Claire  Bryers from the Bell says: “Although it was a very busy and hectic weekend we were overwhelmed at the support we received and the amount we raised for our two charities. We look forward to running the 4th festival in 2017!”
