The Water Poet

August Bank Holiday Cider Festival & HogRoast

With live steel band from 6pm

August Bank Holiday Saturday 29th –Monday 31st

All day from 12pm

The Water Poet Bank Holiday Cider Festival and Hog Roast returns this year to celebrate the August Bank Holiday and all things cider! From traditional scrumpy to the funkiest of flavours, The Barn will be overflowing with a who’s who of the best new and classic cider producers around.

A scrumptious hog will be spit roasted in the sunny beer garden and there will be a steel band daily from 6pm for those who want a touch of Notting Hill Carnival (but without the stress). Grab a cider or perhaps one of our special cider cocktails, pull up a hay bale and enjoy the best cider related bank holiday weekend ever. There will also be ice cream available from the Drunken Dairyincluding their very own mango and cider flavour!

An extensive and supremely delicious selection of craft ciders from a variety of producers all over the UK will be available, including Herefordshire’s Abrahalls cider, Welsh purists Hallets, fruity Annings from the West Country, Devon’s Sandfords, and absurdly moreish Thistly Cross from Scotland plus many others.

Come and try a festival pint for just £4.50, or spend the afternoon making your way through the lot, in the beer garden! Available from the barn, everyone’s favourite apple based booze will flow throughout the weekend and all day Bank Holiday Monday.

There really is no better way to while away a bank holiday afternoon than relaxing in a beer garden with a delicious scrumpy in hand, munching on pig and enjoying live music.
