Record numbers flocked to this year’s Hull Real Ale and Cider Festival.

Over 4,000 people attended the three day event- a thousand more than last year.

The festival also raised £5,000 which will be split between church funds and the £4.5m regeneration project.

Reverend Matt Woodcock said it was a fantastic weekend:

“This was the fourth time Holy Trinity has hosted the festival and it was undoubtedly the biggest and best yet.

“There was a fantastic, friendly atmosphere, with drinkers enjoying great beer and company surrounded by 700 years of history and heritage.

“People were queuing to come in from the start on all three days and we were up to our legally permitted capacity for most of the time. That meant people had to queue to get in, but we want to thank everyone for being so patient and understanding.

“We are now planning to review our licensing options to enable even more people to enjoy future festivals and experience this amazing place.”

The event is organised by Hull and East Yorkshire branch of CAMRA. Chairman Stewart Campbell said he was pleased it had been another success:

“This year’s festival was the best yet. Holy Trinity is a wonderful building and is simply a perfect venue for the festival.”
