"We love real cider and scour all corners of the UK looking for the finest cider money can buy - and bring it to your door for you to taste, savour and enjoy with your friends, alongside great sausages and fine music.

"There will also be a huge variety of delicious sausages, definitely not the standard bangers you would find in your local supermarket. We source the finest butchers sausages and those with a little twist too!"
