15 and 16 October 10am to 5pm
Hamptonne Country Life Museum
La Faîs’sie d’Cidre is the celebration of cider making traditions, creating a traditional Jersey experience in the beautiful surroundings of Hamptonne. There are some changes taking place at Hamptonne and we are limiting visitor numbers in keeping with a smaller event focused on traditional cider making in the cider barn.
Come and support our cider making volunteers at Hamptonne as they work in the traditional way with horse power, to bring to life Jersey’s rich heritage of cider production.
- Parking is free and in Hamptonne carpark only. Please note that there is no other parking for this event.
- Parking must be booked in advance through Eventbrite here.
- There are 50 (including disabled) spaces, please maximise your parking slot by filling up your car with willing family and friends.
- There are two parking sessions per day. Cars booked in on the morning session will need to vacate the carpark by 1pm.
- Should you change your mind about joining us, please make sure that you let us know via Eventbrite so that others can book in your place.
- Please note that usual entry fees to the event will apply, free entry for Jersey Heritage Members, Patrons, Corporate Members and under 6s.
Buses, walkers and cyclists
- There are no additional buses or shuttle buses to the event
- The number 7 bus runs every hour on Saturday and every two hours on Sunday
- No need to book if you are coming on the bus, walking or cycling (normal entry fee applies)
All activities will be centred around the north and south courtyards. There will be music, wonders, cabbage loaves, chutneys, honey, delicious saucisse, dancing with the Jersey Lilies on the Sunday, saucisse and cider from La Robeline and a full programme of live acoustic music. Of course, the main event is always the horse, the cider making and the cider makers, who stop for a well-deserved lunch around the fire in Hamptonne House each day between 12pm and 2pm; served by la Bouonne Femme, it really is like stepping back in time.
