Brogdale Cider Trail: Savour the summer while you sample over 50 ciders locally produced. Brogdale rolls up the barn doors to local producers of Artisan and specialist cider. Barrels of scrumptious cider and Perry only available in selected outlets will be racked and ready for visitors to sample.

Entertainment will include live music, activities for little festival goers, fair games and of course cider making demonstrations.

A free shuttle bus will be running from Faversham mainline train station to Brogdale throughout the weekend, allowing visitors easy access from public transport routes.

A great day out, just over an hour from London to the heart of the Kent country side.

Taste the finest ciders from small producers based in and around Kent including Kentish Pip, Turners, Kent Cider Company and Biddenden’s. Along with Tiddly Pomme who are resident artisan cider producers, offering our very own apples from The National Fruit Collection, in their Woolly Pig. The Cider Barn will offer over 50 ciders to enjoy during the weekend. With cider sampling and tasting available all day. Ciders will range from lighter sparkling to fiery ginger flavours to classics made with traditional Cox and Bramley. 

Visitors can follow the Cider Trail to find each of the producers for sampling and scoring. The people’s favourite will determine a ‘Cider or Perry of the Festival’.

Popular local bands will perform throughout the weekend with headline acts including Hullabaloo while Jumbo Gumbo will have visitors swinging their pants on the Festival Field.

All bookings are non-refundable and non-transferable.
