Battle of the Beer Tents!

The Battle of the Beer Tents is hotting up - after three were granted alcohol licenses on the same day last week.

On Friday, the Department for Enterprise won permission from the licensing court for its VIP area in Noble's Park, while Clinch's Leisure was granted an alcohol licence for its Bottleneck Car Park site.

Bushy's Brewery, meanwhile, was given the green light for its new beer tent in the Villa Marina Gardens this year.

Heron and Brearley also has new plans for this year's festival, with a new bar called the Trackside next to the TT Grandstand.
