a glass at Burnham-On-Sea's Cider Festival, starting today
two-day Cider Festival is being held this weekend with two days
of music and great local brews.
The festival will take place on Saturday 28th, coinciding with
the town's Food and Drink Festival, and Sunday 29th September.
Following the success of the Burnham Beer Festival in May, this
event will again be held at The Ritz in Victoria Street.
The Burnham Cider Festival will feature a great range of mainly
local ciders, including such gems as Westcroft's Janets Jungle
Juice, Mill Whites' Rum Cask, Weston's Old Rosie and Black Dragon
from over the border in Wales.
The Ritz Travers Suite will be the hub of the festival, although
visitors are welcome to use all of the Ritz bars and there will
be some great live music on stage during the weekend.
The Mangledwurzels will headline the Saturday night stage with
their trademark Wurzels-flavourer cider-fuelled Scrumpy and Western
music. Tickets for the Mangledwurzels are selling fast from the
Ritz at only £5 (£3 Ritz members).
On Sunday afternoon local band Rustique will be on stage with
a great mix of music, often from the Irish tradition and with
influences from Shanties, Cajun, Bluegrass and even Skiffle within
their Repartee. Admission is free all weekend except for the Mangledwurzels
on Saturday night and everyone is welcome! More information can
