Leicestershire Sausage & Cider Festival returns to Cattows Farm THIS WEEKEND, as the festival announces a range of new attractions and improvements at this year’s event. Alongside the ciders and sausages punters can look forward to being treated to live music, kids’ activities, late night DJs and family camping, all for just £9.50/day (£7.50 for children and under 5s free).

This year’s festival will return with an even better range of sausages and ciders for festivalgoers to enjoy, with additional outlets and minimal queue times. What’s more, those who opt for camping tickets will all enjoy 4 free cider sampling tokens per person to enjoy a range of ciders on the house as well. Organisers have also increased the size of the outdoor stage and raised the free entry for children from under 3s to under 5s so that even more families can come along for their first festival experience.

Families will be able to enjoy the improved children’s entertainment with activities including craft and circus skills workshops alongside appearances from their favourite famous characters. Not taking the kids along? Don’t worry why not keep yourself entertained with one of the sausage and cider making seminars or enjoy your time in the bigger, extended bar areas.

Along with fantastic food and drinks range, festival organisers have been keen to create an event that encompasses the very best aspects of a summer festival. There’ll be live performances from some of the very best known tribute acts including The Spice Girls, Bob Marley, Arctic Monkeys, Madonna, Foo Fighters, Take That and Madness, as well as fantastic local talent including The Daydream Club and The Paradimes to name just a couple.

As if all of that isn’t enough, other attractions also include a free firework display on Saturday night, roller disco and funfair.

Festival Director, Jimmy Dean, commented, “We’re really happy with the improvements that we’ve put in place to make this year’s event the very best that it can be. We pride ourselves on offering top quality entertainment which is affordable to everyone and we can’t wait to welcome everyone back to Cattows Farm in June. Tickets are selling really well and we’ll have plenty of cider in! Fingers crossed for some sunshine too.

Tickets for Leicestershire Sausage & Cider Festival start from just £9.50 for adults for day tickets and £29.99 for weekend camping tickets. Under 5s go free and family ticket options are available. Tickets are on sale now from HERE.
