Our popular tutored cider tasting event will return on Saturday 13th July!
Limited tickets are available for this event which will give you access to the festival site from 12pm, an hour before we open to the public.
The event will begin with an introduction from cider maker Chris Hewitt, who will give you a little of the history of traditional cider making before getting down to the tasting. You’ll be taken through the differences between different styles, tastes and varieties of traditional cider and perry – from sweet to very dry, from fruity Hereford varieties to the more earthy Northern styles.
Once you’ve learnt the basics, the bar will be opened for you to explore the cider range for yourself. You’ll get around a half an hour to sample freely before the festival opens at 1pm.
Tickets for this special event are just £20 which includes festival entry for the day, the tasting event including all cider and perry from noon to 1pm, plus your festival glass and programme.
