Held at Earls Court for the fourth consecutive year, after moving from its former home at Olympia, the Camra-organised exhibition welcomed visitors from across the country to sample real ales, beers and ciders.

The venue was transformed into one large pub that allowed visitors to not only sample the global selection of tipples on offer, but also play traditional pub games and eat authentic public house food.

Camra director of national festivals Marc Holmes said: "Ever-increasing consumer interest in real ale, combined with advertising in London publications, digital radio stations and supplements in national newspapers, helped raise the awareness of the festival to new levels this year."
