Cider Challenge at the yew tree inn

Saturday 27th July 2024

A peer-judged cider and perry competition.
Taking place over a weekend, with the judging on Saturday, the Yew Tree Cider Challenge is a cider competition inspired by the Big Apple Cider Trials, with peer-judging and complete transparency.
All ciders and perries should be pure juice, with no artificial sweeteners. There are no restrictions on who can enter.
We have combined this with a pub cider festival where the entries are on sale and profits from the sale of your cider or perry will go to our charity of the year.
Each year in 2019, 2022 and 2023 we raised an incredible £1000 for charity, donating the money to Hope Support Services in 2019 and 2023, and to Tree Aid in 2022. So come along and join in and raise some money whilst drinking cider!
This event is free entry to the public.
Camping and Caravanning is available for the weekend on Broome Farm or at the Yew Tree Inn. Click here to book.
