Sausage and Cider Night 2020

Event Weekends

Saturday 3rd October 2020

Our Sausage and Cider Night has proved so popular and is returning for its fourth successful year! It has sold out every single time so do not miss out!

Join us in our wonderful Old Chook Shed for an evening of incredible live music and dance the night away with your family and friends.

Our huge farmers BBQ will be lit, and we will be cooking up the most delicious sausages from Old Oak Poultry Farm (just around the corner from us). One hot dog will be included with each ticket.

The Mac Shack bar will be open all evening, serving you a range of locally produced Hunts Sussex Cider as well as some old favourites. We will have a range of other alcoholic, soft and hot drinks available.

Our outside fire pits will be roaring, which means you can relax outside with some delicious, locally made produce whilst watching the sun set over the trees. We couldn’t think of a better way to spend an autumn evening and we can’t wait to see you all there.
