AN independent Shropshire brewery is looking to spread some festive cheer among the community this year with a Christmas Fayre offering live music, a range of local food and of course beer.

Hobsons Brewery in Cleobury Mortimer has organised a free-to-attend event on Wednesday December 20 from 4pm to 9pm, as an opportunity to give back to the local community and unite some of the region's best food and drink businesses.

Confirmed attendees so far include Penrhos Spirits, Oldfields Cider, Shropshire Salumi, Mr T’s Pies, Broad Bean Deli, Mukaase Foods, Sweet Boxes Shropshire, and the team from Wild Street Kitchen, who will be onsite with their street food trailer serving venison burgers and loaded fries.

Guests will also be treated to festive carols from Cleobury Mortimer Concert Brass Band, and Father Christmas will also be in attendance for the first couple of hours for families with younger children. The Hobsons Brewery Taproom bar will also be open serving up a range of real ales, craft keg beers, Oldfields cider, and more.
