Bristol Cider Shop has announced details of its fifth annual Cider & Sausage Festival. As usual it will take place on the May Day bank holiday weekend, and will feature the very best in local artisan cider and sausages.

This year will see the event move to The Trinity Centre. The festival has been held at the Southbank Club in Southville for the last two years but the popularity of the event has led to the need to find a larger venue.

As ever, there will be over 40 varieties of the new season’s very best cider and perry on offer, plus cider-fuelled music, a cider-themed BBQ and lots of cider prizes to be won. This year will also feature a competition to find the best sausage in Bristol!

Organiser Pete Snowman said “I’m so excited that we’re moving to Trinity – it’s my favourite venue in Bristol! It’s an awesome place and there’s loads more room for live music, which is what cider festivals are all about.”

The event is split into afternoon (12-6pm) and evening (7pm-12am) sessions. The afternoons are more relaxed whereas the evenings are all about the music! Tickets cost £5 for the afternoons and £10 for the evenings. Tickets are available now from www.bristolcidershop.co.uk – and Bristol Bites readers can enjoy half price tickets until the end of February by using the code BB241 at checkout.

The organisers are looking for volunteers to work at the festival and to help organise the event. They would also like to hear from any bands that would be interested in playing over the weekend.
