If there were ever a time to kick back, soak up the rays, and enjoy a cool glass of cider, it's probably next weekend to be honest. But in the mean time, there's plenty of hot festival action this Easter Bank Holiday weekend, which should act as a kind of warm up for the Big Royal One.
I've started early, with a pre-weekend snifter at the terrific Pig'n'Falcon in St Neots. Real ale rules here, but there's a good selection of ciders and perrys available too, usually from Westons or Gwynt-Y-Ddraig. During festival weekend the range has been max'd with a few local specialities from Cam Valley and Pickled Pig. If you're anywhere near the area, I can highly recommend it.
The Pig,n,Falcon, not to be mistaken for the nearby Wetherspoon!
