Further Event Information: Fuelled By Cider’s day of cider tasting and live music returns to All Hallows Hall in Easton, Bristol, on Easter Saturday 2016.

We will be bringing a huge selection of proper, farmhouse ciders from across the West Country and beyond for you to taste, rate or just enjoy. Awards will be given for the most popular ciders of the day in 3 categories of medium, dry and sweet.

Live music in the afternoon from Steve Wurzel & The Scrumpy Swillers plus the brilliant captain hotknives and ACiD DROP during the evening session.

Plus a selection of hot food from local caterers so that you can stay all day in a happy cider haze.

Free entry between noon and 6pm, £5 afterwards (free with afternoon session stamp).

Young people welcome during the afternoon if accompanied by an adult. 18+ ID required to purchase from the bar.

The vibe at 2015’s event was fantastic – a combination of lovely, interesting people and atmospheric venue – and we want to recreate it again so please spread the word to everyone you know.

In order to enter the tasting awards (including “Best in Bristol” category, which is for BS postcode based cider) you will need to provide 5 litres of cider in a bag in box. The serving of tastings can get quite hectic at busy bar times and this is the most efficient way for us to dispense them.

Please register your interest in advance at info@fuelledby.com and let us know the name of your cider candidate!

May the best scrump win…
