That’s right everybody, it’s nearly here…. Milk Fest 2017 kicks off in three days time! The beer’s in the cellar, the bunting’s up and the stage is being raised. We hope you’re in full summer swing ready to enjoy a weekend of celebrations at The Milk House all the way through to Monday evening.

It all begins on Friday night with music from singer-songwriters Nick Eve and Pete Gardiner, followed by some high-energy funk, pop and rock from Indigo Sea. Don’t miss our specially-created Summer Spritzers designed to get you in the party mood and welcome in the weekend. Which cocktail takes your fancy? The Crocked Canary, The Flushed Flamingo, Tipsy Toucan? It’s Friday night, so why not try all three?

On Saturday, it’s all hands on deck for a day of swashbuckling family fun. Grab your flip-flops and drop your anchor in a deckchair while the kids enjoy the bouncy sandcastle, face-painting and hunt for buried treasure in the sandpit. Stay for lunch or dinner and enjoy our BBQ on the terrace accompanied by a feast for the ears with tunes from Charlie Dorrell, Daniel Glover, and Someone Anyone before Josh Renton & The Wildfires, Narratonesand the Devil’s Cut Combo rock us into the evening!

Festival fever continues on Sunday with a Homegrown & Handmade fair showcasing some of our favourite local people – Moons Green CharcuterieClaire’s BreadWylde & ShrubSpeakeasy Ice CreamsAnno DistillersDebonair Tea and Romney Marsh Wools. Alongside all this, artists Sandy Dooley and Amy Devlin will be displaying their colourful paintings inspired by the local landscape and encouraging all our visitors to leave their mark on a collaborative canvas.

Our full fat festival BBQ will continue to cook up chargrilled treats all afternoon and evening while the music plays on. There’ll be performances from Ramblin’ Rags, Alana HazzardOrfila and Milky Negro, with The CaressCaleb Howard-Almond and The Bay Rays bringing the night to an exuberant conclusion. Our Dining Room will be open for Sunday lunch and dinner too.

On Monday don’t miss the Sissinghurst Village Fete and then join us back at the pub to keep the party spirit alive with tunes from Kyla Stroud and Fred Clark, followed by the super fun Tragic Mushrooms.
