DAYTRIPPER: Music & Food Feastival

We’re lucky at Thistly Cross Cider, to be based in Dunbar, the ‘sunniest place in Scotland’, and whilst we love all the seasons (we need a good mix of rain and sunshine to create all those fantastic apples we use!), if we’re talking festivals, then let’s face it, we all ideally want a good amount of the sunny stuff. So it’s pretty fitting that Dunbar is finally getting its own summer Feastival on Saturday 3rd September in Lauderdale Park. World meet DAYTRIPPER: Music & Food Feastival!

All set in Lauderdale Park, a perfect outdoor venue with its lovely walled garden right in the heart of Dunbar. day band picDaytripper is the idea and creation of Claire and Alan Gray, a local couple who combine their passion for food and music. Claire operates the Cafe in Dunbar’s Lauderdale park, and also has her own small, artisan food company called NoCowKnowHow producing allergy-free foods. Alan is a musician, and they’ve both been hosting small music sessions in the Cafe Lauderdale. Their longer term, admirable aim is to create a music venue for local artists and bands to perform, and this is how Dunbar Daytripper came about. For its first year, any profits are being reinvested into the park and enhanced leisure facilities, such as outdoor performance space and games
