Lodestar Festival – a fantastic family festival
31st – 2nd September, Lode nr Cambridge
Lodestar, now in to its fourth year, is fast becoming the place to be for a fantastic family friendly festival for the east of England area and Aspall is delighted to be available on tap again this year. Along with a great music line-up over the 3 days, there is a brilliant range of entertainment to suit all ages. Take a look at the website for the acts and how to buy tickets http://www.lodestarfestival.com or follow on twitter @lodestarfest
Carfest – double the excitement
Carfest has two exciting festivals over the summer. The brainchild of Chris Evans, a car fanatic, you’ll find Carfest South in Laverstoke Park Farm, Hampshire on the 25th – 26th August and if you’re more northern based, you’ll find it happening in Cholmondeley Castle, Cheshire on the 8th – 9th September. Not only for car enthusiasts, there’s something for all the family with incredible music acts as well as an amazing line up of food and drink plus Carfest is also raising money for Children in Need.
Of course it wouldn’t be the same without a bottle of your favourite tipple being available whilst taking in the phenomal entertainment. We’ve been around longer than the vintage cars but our Draught Suffolk Cyder is still wonderfully refreshing.
Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival
29th – 30th September
Aspall is delighted to be a sponsor again this year at the Aldeburgh Food and Drink Festival, a celebration of the abundance of good local food and drink to be found in Suffolk. The Baby Barn, (a small marquee based on our original Old Cyder House) will be in the main courtyard serving Draught and Blush on tap and bottles of cyder to go. You’ll also find us in the food hall where you can sample our vinegars and apple juice. Why not take advantage of our deal of 6 cyders for £10.
Along with the incredible cooking demonstrations from local chefs on the stages, Henry Chevallier Guild will be running two cyder tutored tastings across the two days at 3.30 – 4.30 on the 29th and 12.30 until 1:30 on the 30th. All workshops can be booked in advance online at www.aldeburghfoodanddrink.co.uk.
Along with the festival, why not take the opportunity to visit an exhibition of photographic portraits celebrating the Suffolk food and drink scene. Aspall were honoured to be asked to be involved with The Eighth Generation of Cyder Makers, Barry and Henry Chevallier Guild featuring in the gallery of portraits by Paul Dixon, the incredibly talented local photographer. ‘Made in Suffolk’ will be exhibited at the Aldeburgh Food & Drink Festival at Snape Maltings from 28th September until 5th October.
