An array of music and artistic talent along with a choice of 18 different ciders will be on offer at this year’s Chacombebury Festival.

The popular cider and music event will be on Saturday, August 8 and has been going for about eight years.

From noon families and their children can head to Chacombe’s George and Dragonpub where they will be spoilt for choice with two stages offering live and acoustic sets.

Tonya Angelina is one of the organisers and said: “It is a really chilled event and we as organisers do not have any stress running it because we love what we do. It will be a really nice atmosphere and the quality of music and food here is brillian so families can bring their children and enjoy what we have to offer.”

Artists already confirmed for Chacombebury include The Meanies, Rufus Goodlove, The Keys and Beyond Trepidation while artists lined up for the acoustic stage include Rosie Samaras, Joe Dolman and Sam Martin.

Children’s activities will include face painting and a number of stalls with lots of art and crafts. Madina Clothing will also be in the village selling clothing and and there will also be the opportunity to try out Africa drumming.

Tickets for the day cost £10 and under-14s get in free.

The live music starts from 12.30pm until midnight and for more details visit the festival’s Facebook page.
