Live music, real cider and great sausages - on August 22 in 2020.


Live music, cold cider and hot sausage - the annual Milton Keynes sausage and cider festival is back in 2020 a little later in the summer on Saturday August 22.

30+ ciders sourced from artisan producers around the country. Street food stalls selling; a variety of sausage - from smoked long dogs to Polish kielbasa and Bratwurst; boerewors and dressed corn from Smoke and Braai; MK's award-winning house of smoke The Rub BBQ; griddled cheese toasties from Good Times Cafe; and new for 2020, Birmingham's bun meisters The Patty Freaks will be joining the party with their amazing burgers.

How it works

 You can buy in advance - and save - or pay on the day.

You can buy tickets in advance or pay on the day. The festival supports grass roots sport in Milton Keynes. Since we started, we've helped to raise over £15,000 for MK RFC.

The cider bar runs on a token system. Each token buys one half pint of cider. Tokens can be bought in advance  - 5 tokens for £9 until April 30 - or on the day - 5 tokens for £10 or 11 tokens for £20. Unused tokens are not refundable. Tokens are on sale in the tent next to the cider bar.

Cider is available to take away in two pint containers. Cider ranges from £3.60 to £4 a pint. Lager, beer and a range of other alcoholic and soft drinks will be available from the club bar.

No-one under the age of 18 is permitted to drink or be served alcohol. No alcohol is permitted to be brought into the festival. All bags will be checked on arrival by our friendly security team.

Feel free to bring camping chairs, picnic rugs and sun shades - whatever makes you feel comfy! Sorry but no picnic hampers!

Please drink reponsibly.


The festival takes place at Milton Keynes RFC in Bowland Drive, Emerson Valley, MK4 2DN.
