Returning to the picture-perfect location of Healey’s Cyder Farm on Friday 13th – Sunday 15th September 2019, Little Orchard Cider & Music Festival welcomes Pineapple Beach and a new Cyder Supper experience. Bursting at the seams with apple-infused tipples, hand-raising performances, mouth-watering food and cider-inspired games, the much-loved festival will also see music performances from The Zutons, REEF and The Wurzels. Tickets are available now via the website.

Time to get tropical! Celebrating the official WORLD launch of Rattler Pineapple on draught, Little Orchard Cyder & Music Festival invites party-goers to enjoy a refreshing pint on the golden sands of Pineapple Beach. Hidden amongst the apple trees, the pop-up beach will bring a seaside vibe to this year’s event.

Join Healeys’ master cyder maker and enjoy an evening of Cornish cyders perfectly paired with a selection of small taster dishes. Taking place within the walls of the farm’s cobbled courtyard, the newly added Cyder Supper gives guests the opportunity to learn more about how Cornish cyder is made and how to pair the different tipples with food. The Cyder Supper evening will be held on Saturday 14th September at 5.45pm – 7.15pm. The small plate menu includes Rattler Cyder battered cod, Cornish pulled pork and apple crumble. To book a place at the table, please visit Healey’s website here.

Joining festival headliners, The Zutons and REEF on stage this year, are The Wurzels, Skinny Lister, Mad Dog Mcrea and Dr Meaker. Other acts to look out for include Land of the Giants, Imperial Leisure, Black Friday, Thrill Collins, Belfast Busker, The Big Sets, The Brim and Me & The Devil.
Other festival features to look forward to include Club Fromage – an overload of cheesy dance floor bangers and chart-topping party songs; The Woodland Silent Disco – springing up under a canopy of apple laden branches, the late-night disco allows partygoers to dance beneath the stars; Rattler Olympics – a series of games for all the family to enjoy including welly wanging, barrel pushing and apple bobbing; and The Zen Den – offering a a variety of energising classes including Kundalini yoga, laughter yoga and Arcoyoga.

Families can enjoy the bouncy castle area or head down to the Healey’s courtyard where children can meet the resident ponies, chickens, rabbits, ferrets, Pygmy goats and of course the Cornish black pigs.
