This year, the pub has decided to add an extra day to the event and the Festival will be running for a full three days, from Friday to Sunday, with attractions for dedicated enthusiasts, CAMRA members and families too.

As well as a range of over 70 different ciders from producers across the length and breadth of the UK and beyond; there will be canal boat cruises, live music from some popular local turns, a magician and children’s entertainment. There’s free admission too, with 10% discount on Festival Ciders for CAMRA card-carrying members on the Friday. Saturday includes a hog roast and live entertainment too.
