REVELLERS packed into a Wigan pub to mark its third annual beer and music festival.

The Old Boat House, in Astley, was the location for the event organised by landladies Michelle Sykes and Deborah Guest.

Michelle said: “We had a massive marquee at the back of the pub, selling cask beers and ciders, and live music.

“There was also entertainment for the children, with a magician, bouncy castle and face painting, plus we provided a barbeque and hog roast.

“This is an annual thing we do.

“It is nice as it brings everybody together.

“Everyone raved on about how good it was and we sold out of everything.”
