Here at SeaCider, we believe Cider should come from whole apples.

Pressed the old school way and then fermented with some Yeast, Time and Patience. Our Apples are Hand-Picked, Hand-Sorted, Hand-Pressed and then the cider is Hand Packaged.

It’s this method that produces our great tasting, flavoursome Cider. We’re proud of what we’ve made and we’re proud to serve it to you.

We believe you all deserve a real pint of real Cider. So enjoy some good Cider with some good mates and some good music. Safe in the knowledge that we’ll be doing the same!

DIVA magazine was launched in 1994 and remains Europe’s biggest-selling lesbian magazine, offering readers 100 glossy pages of vital information: news, entertainment, travel, music, scene, real life features and listings.


Founded in 1984, Gay Times magazine is probably the longest established gay magazine in the world. We grew from a marriage of Him magazine and Gay News – which was the victim of the last successful blasphemy trial in the UK, in 1977.

We have grown enormously from our political and campaigning roots, keeping these integral, but growing into an exciting gay men’s lifestyle and current affairs magazine featuring style, interviews, comment, music and arts. The monthly mag is put together by a crack team in North London, UK. We are the world’s definitive gay magazine. Last year we had a bold redesign and re-brand and are moving through our third decade with a renewed sense of excitement.


Gaydio is the UK’s first FM gay radio station, and we are proud to have them as our Radio Sponsor for the Gay Wedding Shows.
