From humble beginnings 16 years ago, the annual Welsh Perry & Cider Festival returns to Caldicot Castle over the bank holiday weekend Friday 26 – Monday 29 May, and this year promises to be another successful event with an exciting local music line up, and of course the giant Welsh cider and perry bar.

The festival has grown steadily since moving to the castle, which has seen tickets put under high demand; last year Saturday and Sunday tickets sold out as the venue hit capacity in the early afternoon. The organisers anticipate discounted early bird tickets to be snapped up quickly as fans guarantee entry.

Advance tickets are available online at, and the early bird offer runs until Easter. With 16 live artists across the weekend and an added level of family activities on bank holiday Monday, the festival proves a great value weekend. Camping is also available onsite. 

Two lucky winners could be in with a chance of winning a pair of weekend tickets. You just need to tell us in no more than 10 words why you should win.

Email your entries to along with your contact details by no later than noon on Friday, April 28.
