The Cursus Cider & Music Festival is a 3 day gathering of friendly and fun people on bank holiday weekend May 25th - 27th, 2018. We offer high quality original and eclectic music as well as a great selection of cider, ales & food. Children, dogs, tent campers and live-in vehicles are all welcome.

The 2018 line-up is the best yet and features headliners Skinny Lister, Gaz Brookfield & The Company Of Thieves and The Rumjacks, ably supported by the likes of New Town Kings, The Eskies, Skimmity Hitchers, Black Water County, Matilda's Scoundrels, IDestroy, The Surfin' Birds, Two Man Travelling Medicine Show, The Hawkmen, Andy Twyman, Surfin' Turnips, The Intercepteurs, The Outlaw Orchestra, Cuba Libre, Bluetown Rumble, Stealing Whiskey and Sinful Maggie. There will also be DJs spinning tunes through the Fuelled By Cider sound system, including the one and only DJ Dapper Dan aka the Rock 'n' Roll Town Crier.

This is a festival for people who want an uncomplicated good time. It is about good folks, great music and delicious food. There are no circus style distractions and there will not be loads of traders looking for your hard-earned cash. Just come along and chill in a beautiful part of the Dorset countryside.

The historic Dorset Cursus runs through the festival site - hence the name!

Friday we'll be open from 2pm again with the live music starting at 6.30pm and on Saturday and Sunday we will have a full program of music from 12pm. The camp fire will be burning every night for chatter and singing.

Dogs are allowed if kept on a lead and any mess cleared up.
