Actors at the National Justice Museum get set for the festival


‘Ello, ‘ello, ‘ello — the National Justice Museum, in Nottingham, is preparing to host its fifth Law and Order … More Beer Festival on Saturday, September 23.

The museum is at Nottingham’s old courthouse and gaol and the festival will take place in the courtyard, featuring more than 40 real ales and ciders selected by CAMRA.

Those attending will also be able to enjoy food, live music and ‘terror tours’ around the museum, which has been voted the most haunted building in the UK.

The festival, sponsored by J Tomlinson, John E Wright and Quartz Barristers Chambers, will be preceded by a private event on the Friday, hosted by the Nottinghamshire Law Society. More than 20 of its members will sponsor the individual beers.

Nicola Burley, commercial and development executive director at the museum, said: “The beer festival has been a hugely popular event and we are looking forward to its return this September.

“We are an independent charity and we rely on support from local business for our special events to ensure they are a success. Funds raised from the event will enable us to continue our work at the museum, providing fun and inspirational learning experiences for all.

“Our educational programmes are delivered to over 15,000 children each year and encourage young people to be inspired by their rights and responsibilities to become active members of society.”

Nicola added: “We value the contribution that businesses make to our charity, and we are especially grateful to J Tomlinson, John E Wright and Quartz Barristers Chambers, as well as the Nottinghamshire Law Society and its members, for their support with this event.”
