Witcombe Cider Festival

JPR GLO 200618WitcombeCiderFest17 05 Every year this festival just gets better and better.  The excellent location, many big acts, and of course the large array of cider available makes this a wonderful place to be during the summer bank holiday.  Tickets are not expensive but numbers may be limited.  Certainly recommend booking well in advance if youu are planning to stay somewhere locally.
