Batlow CiderFest has grown from a crazy idea into a much-anticipated annual event.
Fantastic autumn weather, skilful event organisation, enthusiastic volunteers and "excidered" attendees will help to put a smile on your face.
If that doesn't work, maybe the "Wacky Apple Tarts" in colourful costumes will help you unwind.
A special release "FestCider" at 6.5% alcohol, has a slightly higher alcohol content than most ciders (4.5%), but is guaranteed to complement the "Pork Apple Cider" pie which will be introduced into the food choices alongside Batlow's own gourmet sausage the "Batwurst".
Modelled on the traditional German sausage and affectionately known as "Batlow's Wurst", it is sure to tantalise the tastebuds of even the most discerning foodie; and organisers will ensure that supplies will be plentiful on a day when gourmet foods will be in big demand.
