PUB-goers will be able to enjoy a range of ciders at a Colne pub’s cider festival.

The festival will take place at the Wallace Hartley in Church Street from Wednesday, July 11th, to Sunday, July 29th.

The pub will offer up to 16 draught and bottled ciders over the 19 days from cider makers in England and Wales.

The selection will include traditional ciders, fruit ciders and perries (pear cider).

Among those on offer will be Mr Whitehead’s Plum Cider, Thatchers Cheddar Valley, Sheppy’s Farmhouse Draught, Weston’s Cider Twist Blackcurrant, Gwynt y Ddraig’s Welsh Gold Perry and Sandford Orchards’ Devon Scrumpy.

Pub manager Rebekah Walker  said: “Cider is the perfect summer drink and I am certain people will enjoy our fantastic selection, a number of which are not usually available in the area.”

All the ciders will be available at £2.20 a pint.

Tasting notes on all of the ciders will be available at the pub.
