The time for the Kinloch Hotel's 2011 beer fest is looming same weekend as the royal wedding. The staff got together on Wednesday to promote the event.

THE KINLOCH Arms Hotel is making sure people in Carnoustie won’t be left out of the celebrations marking the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton by hosting their very own royal wedding party.

The pub will be one of the only places in the town to be marking the occasion with all of the fun kicking of at 10 a.m. on Friday, April 29.

The ceremony from Westminster Abbey, which starts at 11 a.m. will be screened in high definition with all customers receiving a free glass of sparkling wine so they can toast the happy couple.

A free buffet is also being provided and wedding band Tonka will also be on hand to entertain with a prize also going to the person wearing the best hat!

Manager of the Kinloch Jonathan McInally told the Guide & Gazette: “We have decided to hold a royal wedding party because we thought it would be a good way to bring the community together to enjoy the special day.

“Many people have the day off work so hopefully people will come down and have a fun time.”

The wedding also coincides with the Kinloch’s second annual Springfest which will run over two days from Saturday, April 30.

The event will see the pub serving up a variety of draught beers, ciders, vodkas and cocktails from around the world in a marquee in the car park.

A total of nine bands have also been organised to come and entertain customers including Junkyard Dogs, Independence, Deadlight, Revolution and the Little Wolves.

Jonathan added: “We are going to have German beer as well as a Belgian mixed fruit beer along with an English cider and a Swedish strawberry and lime cider.

“We also have beers from Holland and America and will be serving American style hot dogs with a variety of toppings.

“It is just our way of marking the bank holiday weekend and celebrating the fact that spring is finally here.”

The Springfest starts at 3 p.m. on both days running until 10 p.m. on Saturday and 8 p.m. on Sunday.

Tickets are available from the Kinloch costing £5 for adults and 50p for children.
