The Championships usually take place during the Royal Bath & West Show in late May but will, for one year only, take place during the one-off Bath & West Country Festival in August. They regularly attract well over 500 entries from across the country, with teams of judges swirling, sniffing, slurping and spitting their way through dozens of entries in each of the farmhouse and open classes. The best of the best are short-listed for the Championship judge-off and, as previous winners will attest, there is no greater seal of approval than a prize card.

For visitors, the Championships offer the opportunity to improve (or begin) your cider knowledge whilst enjoying everything the Bath & West Country Festival has to offer. There will be a chance to speak to cider-makers large and small, and taste some ciders which you may not have tried before. The Championships will be a major feature of the Festival, and will be situated within the Orchards & Cider Area, which has moved to the Sedgemoor Building, so pop along and take a look.

Would-be competitors haven’t got long to get their entries in, as entries close on 27th July. Click the button below to enter online today!
