This year 10 cider producers will be showing off their wares as will some low alcohol producers such as Big Drop and Infinite Sessions.
There will be tasty street food options such as the Prairie Fire BBQ and Mother Clucker’s twice battered fried chicken – why not pair this with the experimental beer designed especially for the dish.
There will be a series of talks by expert speakers and you will get the opportunity to learn about beer and food pairing techniques, participate in tutored tastings and get tips on how to brew cider.
Plus live DJ sets from five of London’s Soho Radio hosts including Groove Armada’s Tom Findlay and The Cuban Brothers will be providing the sounds for the event.
