Here for the beer

ONE of Wigan’s best known rugby league clubs are inviting fans to touch down at a St Patrick’s Day Beer Festival.

Wigan St Judes in Poolstock are throwing open the club house doors in Keats Avenue next weekend (March 16/17) with a variety of cask conditioned ales, including local beers from Prospect and All Gates.

Saturday night will also see Irish four piece White Lightening entertaining with a lively selection of Trad Irish and contemporary music.

Tickets, including a souvenir glass and festival programme describing the brews, are available from Gary McMahon on 07766 806376.
