Event Information:

Join us to celebrate the banishing of daylight saving nonsense for another 6 months, and the impending goodtimes clock that is British Summertime. It’s no coincidence that this annual festivity falls on the same part of the month where for centuries, the first CIDER become ready after its long cold winters tucked away in cider houses and barns across the country. We’ll be raising a glass or three to the forbidden fermented fruit, and holding a cider festival like no other on March 26th, on the roof of Queen of Hoxton, under the canvas of the Wigwambam.

Expect:

Lashings of mouth watering real & artisan ciders, many exclusive and unique to London!
Tutored cider tasting sessions throughout the day!
Complimentary cheese!
Background folk music!
A mountain of a meat feast, with vegetarian options!
Meet thy [cider]maker tasting sessions!
Cider brandy & mead aplenty!
