Hi Comrades
We’ll be back to you with a full run down of what we’ve been up to in June very soon but thought we’d better let give you the heads up to this new music and cider one day festival happening THIS WEEKEND! We’re getting ready to bring our surf fun to Broadcider near Ilminster. A few tickets left but this looks like it will be a SELL OUT!


Tickets available from
