BEER bosses will pull out all the stops to bus boozers to an ale festival.

Visitors to this year’s Magna Real Ale and Music Festival can catch the normal X1 Steel Link service, which stops at the venue’s pedestrian entrance.

But an extra service, the BF1, will also depart from Meadowhall and Rotherham Interchange every half hour each evening.

The first bus leaves Meadowhall at 6pm, with the last returning at 11.15pm. Buses from Rotherham start at 5.30pm, with the last returning at 11.45pm.

The special service costs £2 from either location and return trips are free with an ale festival glass.
