Herm Ale and Cider Festival


Due to the popularity of the Herm Ale and Cider Festival, the island now organises two festivals a year! The festivals offer an array of ales and ciders from all over the UK, including some from the other Channel Islands. Wine and Champagne are also available and again, different varieties from around the world are featured.

The hub of the festival is the Mermaid Tavern, named after an old cargo ship was used many years ago to carry supplies to the island. The large courtyard is home to live music from Wednesday through to Saturday evenings. The island really does come alive during this time, with a great atmosphere throughout, but you do need to pre-book your accommodation early to enjoy the festivities!
