The Cider Box's Cider and Meat Feast at The Queen of Hoxton

Cider! and Meat!  Feast!  Saturday 15th March at The Queen of Hoxton, near to Liverpool Street station.  Tickets are £15 which includes four halves, plus a food dish - you'l get to taste lots of ciders from this year's first pressing, and it takes place from noon until 7pm.  Note that it'll be be more like a beer festival than a sit down feast.

"Join The Cider Box for a special afternoon session taking place in the Queen of Hoxton’s rooftop bar, celebrating a truly vintage year for cider, after one of the best harvests in an age.
Be the one of the first in London to taste 2014’s finest Somerset ciders, fresh from the racks. The event will feature award winners from Hecks  (a Wigwambam exclusive), Joe Strummer’s favourite, Wilkins, some rather delightful champagne style cider and even a drop of cheeky Somerset Cider Brandy.
Complementing these magnificent juices will be a specially curated food menu, expertly paired by the chaps at Queen of Hoxton. Think juicy pork chops, apple laced sausages and a delicious veggie option.
If the cider and gorgeous grub wasn’t enough to get you here, there will be a plethora of exciting and immersive happenings also taking place in the wigwam. Founder of London Glider Cider, Peter Newton will be discussing how to make award winning cider from apples found in London. With a taste or two of course! There will be a screening of short and beautiful film, The Cider Makers by Graham Trott focusing on the late, great Frank Naish; the world's oldest cider maker, who passed away in December 2013. The folk from The London Orchard Project will be in attendance, talking about how to grow and harvest fruit from the tiniest of spaces in our great city.
