THE headline act for this summer’s Sausage and Cider Festival at Dunorlan Park has been announced by the event’s organisers. Indie rock legends Scouting for Girls will be headlining the first ever edition of the event in Tunbridge Wells on Saturday June 15 (2pm-11pm). The three man band, known for their 00s hits She’s So Lovely, Heartbeat and Elvis Ain’t Dead have previously headlined the festival in other locations across the UK. Alongside the headline act there will also be Barrioke with former Eastenders and Extras star Shaun Williamson as well as tribute acts of Queen, Abba, Elton John, Madness and The Killers.
The foodie festival, which had over 120,000 attendees in 2023, will not only have live music as festival goers will be able to enjoy more than 30 cider flavours and 20 sausage varieties, on-stage sausage and chili-eating contests, and the opportunity to dance the night away at a silent disco.
There will also be a children’s stage which will include a children’s disco, face-painters, and character dress-up activities to keep the little ones entertained.
Tickets to the event at Dunorlan Park are available from £25 on the festival’s website at sausageandciderfest.co.uk/tunbridge
