There were pints, pasties and puns galore as hundreds turned out to enjoy a Cornish town’s first real ale, cider and pasty festival.

Bar 20 and The Thirsty scholar in Penryn showcased more than 30 Cornish brewed beers and traditional ciders this bank holiday as part of a new food and drink festival celebrating the best in local produce.

Festivalgoers could also choose from a range of mouthwatering pasties, from the traditional Cornish to the Thirsty Scholar’s innovative crab and clotted cream creation, as well as take part in the world pasty-eating competition.

To accompany the eating and drinking, the two venues hosted a range of live entertainment across the weekend, including performances by jazz and folk musicians and a stand-up comedian.

David Tayler, one of the event organisers, said: “We want to thank our sponsors, Rebel Brewing, and everyone who turned out to enjoy the festival and make it a successful event.

“We’ve been exceptionally pleased with the response and we look forward to this becoming an annual event.”
