    Melplash Cider Festival

    Doors 6pm

    Melplash Village Hall, Melplash, Dorset DT6 3UD

    Admission by ticket only.

    Bridport Tourist Information Centre

    If you've been following the Skimmity Hitchers for the last couple of years, you'll know that we were particularly fond of the cider world's best kept secret that was the Powerstock Cider Festival. You'll also know how devastated we were when the organisers announced that they had drained their final barrell and called time on the festival.  Then, when all seemed dark and pointless, a true Dorset hero stepped up, announced that the festival would be revived in Melplash and made everything right with the world.  

    Over 20 local cider producers will exhibit their best wares, with awards given for the best dry, medium and sweet, before throwing open the doors to you lot so you can try the best cider that the west has to offer.

    Doors will open to the public at 6pm and we will be on at some point afterwards - it all depends how much cider is flowin'.

    Admission is strictly by ticket only - no entry on the door.  Cider tokens will be sold at the event at £1.50 for 1/2 pint and hot food will be available from stalls at the event.  Make sure you bring enough cash for cider, food and taxis as there's no cash facilities in the village.
