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
"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."

"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!"

"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."
