Following the inaugural International Craft Cider Festival held in August, we have recieved some lovely reviews from stallholders and visitors alike.

Thank you to all of you who took the time to write up about your visit!

"This year's inaugural International Craft Cider Festival provided an excellent showcase for independent cider makers to demonstrate just what a wide variety of great real cider products are now available. Perhaps even more importantly, we enjoyed ourselves enormously and were able to show visitors the huge passion with which we make cider and perry, and the camaraderie that exists in the cider making community."
Neil Worley, Worleys Cider

"This is the first time I've seen any kind of drinks festival conducted in this way, combined with a summer music festival, and it's a format that I thought worked really well.  The atmosphere around the cider tents was amazing, and I've never seen such an interesting collection of cider producers in one place.  I hope to be back next year at an event that's bigger and even better!"
Pete Brown, former British Guild of Beer Writers Beer Writer of the Year

"Overall it was a great festival and I will definitely be back next year. Maybe I will opt for the B&B option, but I did enjoy the camping too. The weather held up pretty well, though Friday was a bit wetter than the Saturday. Crowd wise, Friday was very quiet compared to the Saturday, but both had a good vibe about them."
Nick Morris, The Cider Blog
