Fancy something full fat?

Posted on 24 Aug 2015 in Pub | Comments Off on Fancy something full fat?

That’s right everybody, it’s not long until the last Bank Holiday Weekend of 2015, and of course… Milk Fest, our full fat four-day festival!

It all kicks off on Friday with piccolo pizza – bite-sized samples from our classic selection – accompanied by twilight tunes from singer/songwriter Tom Harvey, and some rollicking blues from The Black Sheep trio.

On Saturday, there’ll be fun for all the family with circus acts, a bouncy castle, face painting, DIY sundaes and Milk Fest movie time. If all that leaves you feeling peckish, there’ll be chargrilled treats from the full-fat festival BBQ and a feast for the ears, too, served up by Sam Easton, Jemima & Will and Freddy Green and The Hotelles!

On Sunday, you’ll have the opportunity to sample Kent’s finest produce because we’re being joined by Kingcott Cheese, Moons Green Charcuterie, Berry & Shrub, Claire’s Bread, Chegworth Valley, Kentish Pip, Turners Cider, Gibbet Oak and Anno Distillers. The Old Dairy Brewery will also be offering samples of our exclusive Full Fat Festival Top – you won’t want to miss out.

Running alongside our foodie fair, there’ll be performances from the fleet-fingered Ramblin’ Rags, dynamic duo Toby & Will and the sultry tones of Sorrel Nation, with Dorey the Wise bringing the night to an exuberant conclusion.

Then on Monday, we hope you’ll join us at the Sissinghurst Village Fete, one of Kent’s most glorious summer events. We’ll be pulling pints from the ‘pop-up’ Hopper Hut bar and then keeping the party spirit alive back at the pub, with Happy Hour from 5–7pm. There’ll be soulful set from Nick John Wilson, followed by the Devil’s Cut Combo who’ll be performing their rockin’ combinations of early 50s, R&B, Blues and Boogie Woogie.

We’re fortunate to be part of a wonderful local community, so we’ll be raising money all weekend for Sissinghurst village organisations including the St George’s Institute, with proceeds going towards our new village hall. So join us for the bank holiday’s last hurrah – and dance your socks off because summer comes but once a year!

We hope to see you there!
