The Wurzels to headline the Cotswolds Cider Festival

The Cotswolds Cider Festival is pleased to announce that The Wurzels have said yes to playing the fest one more time!

The Festival, held at the Bingham Hall, Cirencester, on Friday, July 30, just builds and builds and promises to be another sell-out success.

The Wurzels, as always, will bring their celebration of all things Scrumpy n' Western - a genre packed full of double entendre, mainstream parody and a comical folk style. The perfect accompaniment to cider drinking and the bars will be fuller than full with your favourite brands!

Signed to label heavyweights Columbia and EMI, The Wurzels continue to play hundreds of sell-out shows and festivals every year and insist on returning to Gloucestershire.

Their quintessentially West Country cover of Kaiser Chiefs' 'Ruby' has been a massive show favourite of late, as well as their hip hop version of the ubiquitous hit 'Combine Harvester'. West Country icons travel to see these West Country heroes.

Support, by public demand, is Corky, an agricultural hip-hop artist and the world's greatest Scrumpy & Western rapper straight out of the farmgates of the Dauntsey Vale in north Wiltshire.

His 'Ginster's Paradise' hit went viral on Facebook and is fast becoming the unofficial 21st century national anthem of Gloucestershire and the West Country.

Tickets for the event are priced from £17.00 plus booking fee and are available now from https://www.seetickets.com/event/the-wurzels-the-cotswolds-spring-cider-festival/bingham-hall/1603836
