SKIPTON'S The Narrow Boat pub is celebrating its first anniversary as part of Kirkstall Brewery, with a free-to-attend weekend beer festival at the end of the month.

The festival, on Saturday, June 29, and Sunday, June 30, will feature a new menu of street food, as well as live music and 34 lines of craft beer and real ale.

Dan Steel, the pub's general manager, said: "After a great year under the ownership of Kirkstall Brewery, we decided it was time to celebrate, with a festival to contribute to the amazing beer culture here in Skipton."

The team running The Narrow Boat, in Victoria Street, off Coach Street, have selected beers from a wide range of breweries. New bars will be set up in the pub to ensure 34 different lines of beer, and permission has been granted to use the outside area of the pub into the street.

Dan added: "We're really excited about the range of beers we'll have on, which we're sure will delight the regulars of the pub and visitors from further afield!"
