Tickets for the sixth Ilkley Beer Festival in 2013 are to go on sale on December 1.

Festival organiser – Ilkley Round Table – has brought in a new ticket sales system following complaints last year from people unable to get in.

Ticket sales will open at 10am at the Winter Garden in Ilkley. Tickets, priced £5, are limited to a maximum of four per person.

Payment will be accepted by cash only, and the ticket price will include entry, a programme and commemorative festival glass.

There is also a mail order service for tickets.

The festival itself will take place at the King’s Hall on February 8 and 9.

The festival has raised more than £120,000 for local good causes and charities during the past five years. Visit for further information.
