Chancellor comes to Somerset to drink scrumpy and gets Brewer’s droop!

We at snakey HQ are big fans of Hecks cider in Street, proper job local Scrumpy. And we were horrified to learn that poor bashing posh boys CallMeDave and Gosborne were coming to taint it. But we were never expecting anything as simultaneously hilarious and traumatising as this little picture to ‘pop out’ into the public eye. Here’s hoping it gets the boys at Hecks some free publicity anyway.

Well Done, Wassailers of Hambridge!

That was a tip-top bit of wassailing last Saturday at the lovely Lamb and Lion in Hambridge. It felt rather special to be at the newly refurbished pub’s inaugural wassail and to be the first to sing to that lovely new sapling. Here’s hoping it provides plenty of cider apples for generations to home. We’re looking forward to coming back to enjoy its harvest.

Chris has promised that next year he’ll dress like this

Happy New Year! Wassail!

Happy New Year to y’all.

Lots of exciting, snakey things to look forward to this year: releasing and touring our debut album, various festival dates coming in and general nonsense. More on this in the weeks to come. In the meantime, you have some important apple blessing to do…

Many of you may have promised yourself a ‘Dry January’. But we all know that during these cold miserable months taking up such self-depriving commitments is pointless. Not only that, but there is a very important tradition that needs to be fulfilled to ensure a healthy harvest of cider apples this year – WASSAIL!

Last year we played at a Wassail in a farm’s cider orchard and despite the miserable weather had a ripe old time. The cider that year was provided by Wood’s Traditional Cider.

Since then, Mr and Mrs Wood have moved onto to greater things and are now in charge of the refurbished Lamb & Lion at Hambridge.

We’re very pleased to have been asked to go play at their Wassail celebration on January 17th and invite you all to come join the fun! Put it in yer diaries now.
