We had an absolutely amazing time we had at SheppyFest this year. The weather was extremely unkind to us but never the less there were plenty of smiles, music and of course Sheppy’s Cider to get us through the day.

Muddy tracks, pouring rain and stormy clouds created what can only be described as a ‘festival’ atmosphere. Children carrying their umbrellas overhead whilst their feet slipped on the mud, jumping of bails stacked high into puddles all added to the fun that went on during the day.

Come evening the skies had cleared and everyone emerged from the marquees to enjoy and dance the night away with cider in hand. The music from Showhawk Duo got the crowd going, followed by One Step Behind, Filta and Joey the Lips to round the festival off.

There was plenty of cider flowing at SheppyFest with our Old Conky gowing down a storm!  We had plenty of scrumptious food available throughout the day from freshly made sourdough pizzas to gourmet pancakes from the pancake pod. Mmm drinks co provided hot drinks and all important breakfast for our hungry campers on Sunday morning which went down a treat!

Organisers Louisa and David Sheppy are so pleased with how the event went that they have now decided to plan yet another SheppyFest for 2017. We hope that everyone who enjoyed the day will join us again next year along with many others. Please make sure that you all bring a little bit of sunshine with you!

We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone that helped us on the day, all of our sponsors and suppliers.
