Carnival Time

The attractive market town of Oundle is the place to be this Saturday (20th June) afternoon. The Oundle Carnival returns after a 30 year gap, and looking at the website, there appears to be quite a bit going on, including music, a WW2 fly past, and fireworks to finish the day.

What's not mentioned on the website is the mini beer festival at the Oundle Rugby Club, where we will be delivering a few barrels of our Rockingham Forest Cider. The final barrel of Welland Valley Special will also be going to this event, so if you missed it at the Welland Valley Beer Festival, this will be the last chance to try our most local of ciders.

As an added bonus, and a huge motivating factor in our own attendance at the Carnival, the first British & Irish Lions test match against South Africa will be broadcast in the Rugby club bar from 2pm. Yes, that's the same bar where the beer festival takes place. Now that's what I call great planning.
