All aboard the beer bus for second annual ale festival

Revellers will be able to board a special ‘beer bus’ next week to take them to a South Yorkshire ale festival.

The second annual Rotherham Real Ale and Music Festival takes place at the Magna centre in Templeborough from Wednesday to Saturday.

It will showcase more than 250 real ales, a selection of ciders, perries, and world beers and more than 40 live music performances set across three stages.

Festival-goers will be able to board the BF1 shuttle bus, running to Magna at 20-minute intervals from Rotherham and Meadowhall interchanges, for a £2 return fare.

The service is being run by transport firm First South Yorkshire.

Passengers can visit to plan their journeys.
