A Sheffield beer festival is gearing up to celebrate its 40th anniversary - and organisers are looking for traders, volunteers and musicians to make the event a roaring success.

The Steel City Beer Festival is taking place at Kelham Island Museum for the first time this year, after being held previously at Ponds Forge sports centre.

Visitors will be able to choose from more than 100 real ales, alongside a selection of continental bottled beers, traditional cider and perry.

Drinks from local breweries will be showcased as well as ales from elsewhere in the country, ranging from pale ales to bitters, mild, stout and porter.

Bars and stalls will be spread across four areas at the museum – the upper gallery, the Millowners pub, a marquee and the courtyard.

A programme of live music and pub games is also promised, as well as freshly-cooked food.

The Sheffield Campaign for Real Ale group has organised the event since the 1970s, and the 2014 festival will run from Wednesday, October 29, to Saturday, November 1.
