Little Orchard Cider and Music Festival
This charming little festival in the beautiful grounds of Healey's Cyder Farm is great value for money and if you want the festival experience but not the crowds or corporate feel, this is the place to go next September.
2017 will see the fifth year of this friendly and atmospheric festival, suitable for all ages. The organisers have booked some excellent acts over the past few years, including the amazing Reef and Mad Dog McRea, but this hasn't compromised the size or intimate feel of the event. The BBC introducing stage is also a big draw, making this festival a great place to discover emerging bands and singers.
Then, of course, there's the cider. There are 100 different ciders to sample and secret cider walks. They also throw in a few local ales, too, for good measure!
All this, along with pig racing, a silent disco and big colourful marquees all named after an apple variety means that this boutique festival offers a lot more than just cider!
