Here's to the brewers at Exit 33, who have launched a new pale ale in support of Sheffield homeless charity Roundabout.

Charity Pale was specially developed by the brewery, based at the Harlequin Pub in Kelham Island, with help from competition winner Annie Stoker. It is now on sale at pubs around the city, with a donation from every pint sold going to Roundabout, which supports hundreds of young people and runs Sheffield's only emergency hostel for under-21s.


TV cooks Stacie Stewart and Tom Herbert (Fabulous Baker Brothers) and Sheffield's own Howard Middleton headline a star-studded line-up at the second Bakewell Baking Festival this weekend.

The event will take over Bakewell Showground on Saturday and Sunday, with attractions including demonstrations, workshops, tastings, vintage cars and games, live music, a champagne afternoon tea, vintage stalls and a food village.
