Baldock's first Oktoberfest has raised £2,000 and counting for local causes.

Visitors donned their fancy dress and enjoyed the beer and entertainment at the event held at Brandles School over the weekend.

Tara Geere from the Independent Baldock Beer Festival Charitable Trust, which organised the festival, said: “We had an amazing weekend supported by great volunteers and have received lots of positive feedback from people who attended.

“We will be doing it again next year during the first weekend of October half term 2019.

“We still have some counting to do, but know we have raised £2,000 for Keech Children’s Hospice. Once we have done the rest of our finances, we will let people know via social media what we have given out to other local good causes.”
