A CHARITY Ale and Cider Festival will be held at the Solent Inn, Ryde, this weekend.

The event kicks off at the Monkton Street pub on Thursday and runs until Easter Monday.

There will be 16 real ales and five ciders on offer, and 50p from every pint sold will be donated to the Neo-Natal Intensive Care Unit at St Mary's Hospital, for poorly babies.
