A CIDER and music festival is to return to Dorset for its ninth year.

The 'much loved' Cursus Festival will be coming to Myncen Farm in Blandford over the late May bank holiday weekend, Friday, May 24 to Sunday, May 26.

Cursus is a small family festival known for its original live music and 'good vibes.'

This year's line-up features the likes of Mista Trick, Black Water County, 3 Daft Monkeys, Millie Manders & The Shut Up, The Freeborn Brothers, Gecko and Skimmity Hitchers, with many more live acts and DJs across the weekend.

Festival organiser Kev Davis said: "Whether you can attend for the whole weekend or just one day, you'll find a warm welcome waiting for you at Cursus Festival."
