A long-running sausage and cider festival is being held in Royal Wootton Bassett again this year.

The festival will be staged by the town's rugby club and will feature a barbecue and 20 different cider varieties.

It is set for Saturday, April 20 and will also feature live music, fairground rides, army presence and rugby games.

The festival has been running for 15 years and has seen 2,000 people in attendance.

Organiser Alec Adams said: “It has been a very successful event, especially for the community. 

“There is always a great atmosphere and it is always a great family day with so much for everyone with great live music and sausages.”

The sausages are provided by Bassett’s K & EJ Crump butcher and some of the ciders are sourced from local producers.

In the evening there will be live outdoor music, with Here Come the Crows at 5pm, Mojo at 7pm and then The Groove Club Collective indoors from 9pm.

The day as always will feature a traditional rugby game in honour of Lance Corporal James McCue of the Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers Battalion who died in Iraq.

They will be playing a RWB RFC President’s XV, with the trophy presented by McCue family.

Tickets are £5 with under-18s free. All proceeds are donated to the Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers charity.
