It will run from 5pm Wednesday (14th July) and Thursday and all day Friday, Saturday & Sunday, so we hope to see all the old faces there and plenty of new ones for one of the best pub festivals around. (map)
It doesn't seem two minutes since we were getting excited about the re-opening of the Cellar Bar in Batley, with it's classy refurbishment and dedication to local breweries - so it is very sad indeed to hear that it has had to close.
It was hoped it would cash in on the interest in the Trans-Pennine Ale Trail, being adjacent to the town's railway station, but sadly this has not been the case and it has been forced to shut it's doors for the last time.
****Have heard from a source that the Cellar Bar is still open but under new management with real ales, Swift One will try to get the proper story as soon as possible ****
