It was a great day for many cider lovers on Friday as they enjoyed more than 100 different tipples at Bo Peep Cider Festival in Adderbury.

The three-day event was held at Bo Peep Caravan Park and jam packed with lots of different activities for the family to enjoy, including live music from a host of bands including The Meanies, Greenman Rising, Myrrh Room and No Fixed Abode.

As well as the music there was also entertainment from morris dancers, a funfair with a candy stall, bouncy castle and fairground rides for the young and old.

Those who fancied staying overnight in style were able to make the most of ‘glamping’ and there was also a variety of different stalls from businesses and organisations in and around Banburyshire.

Sian Phillips, part of the organising team for the event, said: “Everything went really well. On the Saturday it was absolutely jumping and Sunday was a little bit quieter but the event comes at a time when the festival season is nearly over so the atmosphere was calm, happy and enjoyable.

“There was a general selection for all the families to enjoy on the day and the children’s entertainers were amazing. I’d like to personally thank Andy and Louise Hodge for allowing us to use their ‘back garden’ and the traders and bar staff were amazing throughout the festival.”
