The annual Big Apple Cider and Perry Trials have become an important competition for the many craft cider and perry producers in our region and beyond. Entry for the 2019 event (to be held on Saturday 4th May) will open towards the end of January 2019 – look out for the announcement on this website.
In 2018 they were held on Saturday 5th May in Putley Parish Hall as usual.

There were categories for both draught and bottled ciders and perries and the public is invited to taste the entries over the two days following the competition.
