Nik Antona, CAMRA regional director for West Midlands, said: "An event of such magnitude and reputation provides the perfect environment for people to learn a little more about real ale and its importance within our national culture.

"With such a regional spread of samplings on offer in the tasting theatre, we hope to show visitors the importance of their local brew in relation to the growth in cask ale sales at the moment.'
