Live music, real cider and great sausages - on May 20 and 21 in 2017.


Live music, 30+ real ciders, and great sausages - the annual Oadby sausage and cider festival is back in 2017 on Saturday May 20 and Sunday May 21.

All ciders are sourced from artisan producers around the country, and local makers, and there will be bottled sparkling craft cider from CiderBods - - the online store for real cider drinkers, served ice cold. 

Food stalls selling a variety of sausages - from artisan hot dogs to Polish kielbasa, and Mexican chorizo dishes.

There will be inflatable fun for children. Charges apply to these activities. Sunday is our family day when kids get free entry to the festival.

How it works

 Buy in advance - and save money.

You can buy tickets in advance or pay on the day. Advance adult tickets are just £6. Adult tickets on the day are £8. The festival is supporting grass roots sport in Leicester as it helps to raise money for Oadby Wyggs RFC.

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.


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

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

Please drink reponsibly.
