Cider Festival

Cuerden Valley Beer Festival


This years cider festival will take place in our beautiful Walled Orchard from Friday 4th to Sunday 6th August. The bar will open at 1.00pm each day and will close at midnight on Friday and Saturday, 10.00 pm on Sunday. As usual there will be hot food available and live music from local entertainers. All tastes are catered for – there will be over 20 ciders and around 15 Beers, plus Lager as well as wine and soft drinks. Families and dogs are welcome, though dogs must be kept on leads in the Orchard.

Entrance is £5 which includes a glass and free entertainment. The first 1,000 attendees will receive a special limited edition commemorative glass.

Please note that Cuerden Valley Park Trust operate a strict ID25 policy. If you are fortunate enough to look under 25 years of age, you will be asked to produce identification to prove you are 18 before you will be allowed in.

Our bar is staffed entirely by volunteers and whilst every effort will be made to serve you as quickly as possible, there may be times at peak periods when you have to queue.

Unfortunately, Cuerden Valley Park have no outlet for any unsold stock, therefore,we can only order as much as we think we can sell during the weekend. If demand is unexpectedly high, it may be that certain ciders or beers will become unavailable, particularly on the Sunday of the festival. However, every effort will be made to ensure cider and beer are available throughout.

If you have a personal favourite that you would like to see at this or future Festivals, please let us know using the contact form at the foot of this page.
