Beerhunter: Amber Valley beer festival on now and worth a visit
THERE can be few grander, more interesting venues for a beer festival than Strutt's in Belper.
The former Herbert Strutt Grammar School in the town, now re-invented as a multi-purpose community facility, is staging the seventh Amber Valley CAMRA beer festival currently and if you're stuck for something to do over the weekend, you could do a lot worse than drop in.
