Come rain or shine the Kinloch Arms Cider Fest will be going ahead this weekend according to the organisers.

Proprietor Jonathan McInally has made sure that even if last week’s terrible weather is repeated his annual Spring Cider Fest will be completely unaffected tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday.

Jonathan said: “We have nine bands confirmed so far and a whole range of interesting ciders to sample, all of it taking place indoors, so you don’t have to worry about the weather at all.”

The bands confirmed so far are: Hideaway; Cutting Corners; Boston Tea Party Unplugged; Sleepers; Simpatico; Dave and Paul; Warden McGinty; Peh n’ Beans and Lady Miss Emma.

There will also be a range of specialist draft ciders including Old Rosie, Appleston, Aspall and Rekordlig, Thatcher’s Gold and Thistly Cross.

Jonathan added: “I’ll also be putting on a selection of different bottled ciders from around the world and I’m hoping to source some really unusual ones this week.”

Entry is free and there will be live music from 2 p.m. to midnight tomorrow (Saturday) and Sunday. Food will be served throughout the day and there will be a short break from the festivities on Sunday during the Manchester City v Liverpool game.
