A unique Jersey experience in the beautiful surroundings of Hamptonne
- 14 October 2023 - 15 October 2023
La Faîs’sie d’Cidre brings together communities, volunteers and apple and cider experts to create a unique Jersey experience in the beautiful surroundings of Hamptonne.
But it's not all about the cider - there's also live music, entertainers, creative activities, dance, artisan sellers, fantastic food and even better company. There really is something for everyone - lots to do, things to learn, people to meet and fun to be had! Support our cider making volunteers as they, with the help of working horses, produce cider for next year’s festival. Two pressings each day 10am-12pm & 2pm-4pm each, each pressing takes 40 x 25kg sacks of cider making variety apples. That’s 160 sacks of apples!
Parking is very limited for this event, please catch the bus or make alternative transport arrangements. More details below.
