    New Forest Cider steam pressing weekend

    11am - 4:30pm

    New Forest Cider, Burley, Hampshire BH24 4ED

    Entry: £5 on the gate. Concessions for children and OAPs

    For all of the slagging that we give Hampshire, even we can't deny that the New Forest is a bit special, and New Forest Cider is a proper job cider farm, right up there with the best that Somerset, Hereford and even Dorset have to offer.

    The New Forest Cider steam pressing weekend is a two day celebration of cidermaking how it used to be - with bloody gurt big steam enginesand a load of blokes in smocks with two handled cups full of cider and smiles on their faces.

    We're very, very proud to have been asked back for the 5th year running to entertain you, the great unwashed cider drinking public, with our drunken, cider -related musical ramblings.  We'll be doing three sets throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday, starting at 12pm and finishing about 4pm. In between times we'll be squishing apples, whittling bits of wood and consuming our own weight in New Forest Cider's dangerously drinkable Snakecatcher Scrumpy.

    This is a great weekend for anyone interested in making or drinking proper cider  - don't miss it!
