WETHERSPOON is hosting a festival with up to 15 craft ciders available in its Dorset pubs. 

The 10-day festival will be held at a number of east Dorset’s Wetherspoon pubs from Friday, May 24 to Sunday, June 2. 

The festival line-up includes Muddy Scamp (Purbeck Cider), Perrylicious (Weymouth Cider), Chilli Ginger (Cockeyed Cider), Moonshine Rum & Raisin (Broadoak Cider), Tequila Sunrise (Celtic Marches), Slack-Ma-Girdle Cider (Hecks Cider), Scrummage (Harry’s Cider), Rosie’s Pig (Westons). 

The ingredients in the ciders include rum, raisin, pineapple, coconut and tequila. 

The ciders will each cost £2.99 a pint. 

Participating pubs include Bournemouth town centre’s The Moon in the Square and The Mary Shelley, Winton’s Parkstone and Heatherlands, The Man in the Wall in Wimborne, The Blackwater Stream in Broadstone and The Lord Wimborne and The Quay in Poole. 

Mary Shelley pub manager Peter Goatley said: “The festival is a celebration of craft cider. 

“It will offer our customers the opportunity to enjoy a selection of craft ciders not usually available in the pub, and at the same time support the individual cider producers.” 

All ciders will be available to order at the bar or via the Wetherspoon app. 

The pubs will have tasting notes available.
