MIDDLEWICH Cider Festival is back and promises to be bigger and better than ever.

Tickets are now on sale for this popular event which will be held at The Kings Lock on July 30 and 31.

The festival hasn't been held since 2019 due to the pandemic.

A disco celebrating music from the 70s, 80s, 90s, and 00s, starts the event on the Friday evening.

Josh Hicks, from Middlewich Round Table, said: "We are delighted to be putting the festival back on this year.

"We are very grateful to the Kings Lock for allowing us to use their outdoor events space.
