The Welsh Perry and Cider Society has cancelled its proposed festival over the June Banck Holiday Jubilee weekend due to an objection by Caerphilly Council. Oh well them, no Cider Festival at Unisthee Rugby Club then.
No worries as the Clytha Arms, the Home of Welsh Cider, are holding their own festival that weekend with ciders and perries from Monmouthshire and beyond. The People's Front of Judea in the Welsh Perry & Society decided to break away from the traditional venue of the Clytha Arms and run their own festival, now that has had to be cancelled, where better to enjoy good cider and perry than in the Monmouthshire countryside?
Well there is somewhere as good as the Clytha, the rescheduled Gwynt Y Ddraig open weekend is on the Saturday & Sunday as well, 2nd & 3rd of June.
