The Westons’ Cider Teepee will be taking centre stage at The Big Feastival this weekend (August 28 to 30), ensuring there will be cider galore for foodies and music lovers alike.

The Big Feastival, to be hosted by Jamie Oliver and Alex James on the Blur bassist’s Cotswold farm, is a celebration of the hottest music acts and delicious food, courtesy of the country’s top chefs and street food experts.

Perfectly situated next to the main stage, the cider teepee will bring a touch of Westons’ Herefordshire Cider Mill to The Big Feastival, complete with a traditional barrel bar and reclaimed wood tables, comfy bean bags and heavenly hammocks. It will be the ideal place to sit back with a cold refreshing cider and enjoy the soulful tones of Paloma Faith and the cool beats of Groove Armada.

This is the first year Westons will be showcasing Henry Westons, Old Rosie and Wyld Wood together under the new ‘Westons Crafted Cider’ umbrella, all of which have been crafted to perfection using traditional cider making techniques dating back 135 years.

As an extra treat for festival goers, Westons will be bringing new limited edition flavours to The Big Feastival, including Old Rosie Cloudy Cider with Rhubarb, Elderflower or Cloudy Lemonade - perfect for the summer. Two new Henry Westons varieties will also be making an appearance, Henry Westons Single Orchard Still Cider and Henry Westons 1880 Still Cider.

Guy Lawrence, fifth generation cider maker of the Westons family, says, “We can’t wait to share our delicious cider with everyone at The Big Feastival. We had a great response to our Wyld Wood cider bar last year but this year we wanted to bring the entire traditional range, along with our super premium cider Mortimer’s Orchard, to show people how our cider is crafted to perfection and tastes so much better.

“As well as being a great place to soak up the festival vibe, our teepee offers plenty to keep visitors entertained, from a spot of ping pong to head in the hole photo boards for all your comedy festival snaps.”

With so many great flavours to choose from, Westons will be asking cider lovers which cider they think is super scrumptious, giving you the chance to sample a third of a pint of three different varieties thanks to its ‘cider sliders’. There will also be a chance to win a case of cider by voting for your favourite ‘team’ via Twitter using the hashtags #TeamWyld, #TeamRosie, #TeamHenry or #TeamMortimers.
