The event, organised by Oxford CAMRA, features a selection of 140 real ales as well as more than 50 ciders and perrys.

Beer lover Andy Francis, 55, from Risinghurst, said: “The selection here is as good as anything we have had before.

“I have been coming for a number of years. There is a good atmosphere and we are having a splendid time.”

The festival will run today from 11am until 11pm and tomorrow from 11am until 8pm.

Admission costs £2.
