Tis the season for festivals in the sun, and this weekend there are a couple to enjoy in the Milton Keynes area.
The Milton Keynes sausage and cider festival is one of these, running Saturday 19th till Sunday 20th at Milton Keynes RFC, Emerson Valley. There'll be live music, 40 types of real cider, a great selection of gourmet sausages and bottled craft cider. Open from noon till 11pm on Saturday and noon till 8pm on Sunday, this annual festival is set to be a great event. It is a ticketed event, and costs £5 per adult. The festival is supporting grass roots sport in Milton Keynes, and part of the profits will go to MK RFC. Feel free to bring camping chairs, picnic rugs and sun shades, no picnic hampers and no dogs allowed! Come along for a great day out, keep your fingers crossed for the sun and don't forget your suncream!
Bedford River Festival also takes place this weekend, and always attracts a huge number of people. Hosted on the banks of the River Great Ouse in Bedford, this year it is predicted that record numbers of visitors will attend. The festival provides a huge number of different activities for all the family to get involved in, including live entertainment, river events, the festival parade, funfair, fete, raft races, dragon boat racing, fireworks, sports, art and heritage villages.
