Festival go-ahead decision this week
PUBLISHED: 11:30 02 April 2015
The event, which was a sellout when it first hit Honiton last year, is planning to be back on Friday, May 1 to Saturday, May 2.
Organisers of the hugely popular Sausage and Cider Festival say they expect to hear back about being granted a licence by this Friday (April 3).
The festival, which was a sellout when it first hit Honiton last year, is planning to be back on Friday, May 1 to Saturday, May 2.
It will be held at Honiton Showground - a brand new location, which offers more space and improved facilities.
Last year’s event, held at Old Honiton Agricultural Showground, in Langford Road, was a huge hit with attendees, and netted much-needed funds for Honiton bloodbikes charity Devon Freewheelers and local causes.
Gill Day, of the Freewheelers, which is organising the festival, said: “My wish for the sausage and cider festival is that it is a success for the Devon Freewheelers, but also that the locals get to enjoy a great day out close to home.”
Weekend passes are £15 for an adult and £7.50 for children aged six to 17.
The festival capacity will be 10,000 people each day - purchase tickets at www.honitonfestival.org/ticket-sales
