Live music is a huge part of our festival events, and this year we are super-excited to welcome four great acts over the two days of the Sausage & Cider Festival - so be prepared for some awesome singalong music throughout the weekend!

Friday evening

Old Friends - on the Clubhouse Stage

Kicking off our music-filled weekend will be this club-favourite duo with their own brand of acoustic tunes, from The Monkees to The Beatles to Simon and Garfunkel and more!




Chelsea Millard - on the Flatbed Stage from 5pm

Chelsea is a firecracker of a local singer with a background in musical theatre. She will get everyone up dancing to greatest hits from Amy Winehouse, Bruno Mars, Adele, Madness, AC/DC and Brian Adams!



Sophia and the Soul Brothers on the Marquee Stage from 7pm

This lively 5-piece will entertain the crowd inside the marquee with a classic set of soul tunes, Motown, disco, and reggae.



Midnight Hour on the Clubhouse Stage from 9pm

Headlining the festival is this popular Bath-based soul band, re-imagining the classic upbeat funk & soul of the late 60s and early 70s with smart, passionate reinterpretations for the 21st century.



The festival - sponsored by Walfins - kicks off on Friday 12th May with the McCue Cup - a celebratory rugby match between Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers Battalion and a RWBRFC President’s XV.

The action continues on Saturday 13th May with two County rugby matches – Senior Ladies and Senior Mens. Dorset & Wilts Senior Ladies and Devon Senior Ladies kicks off at 1pm, and Dorset & Wilts Senior Men vs Devon Senior Men kicks off at 3pm.


Outstanding value
