One of the highlights of the Bell at Buckland Dinham's Cider and Chocolate Festival over Easter will be the marriage of two goldfish, according to organisers.

The Bell will kick off its festival season on Saturday from noon until late.

Landlord Jeremy Westcott said: "We like to do the weird and wacky and hope to have a goldfish wedding at about 7pm on the day.

"There will be a huge selection of ciders including the legendary Moonshine, Roadkill, Big Malc, Village Misery and Badger Spit, and a special Perry cider with chocolate, as well as local beers and wine.

"Six chocolatiers will be demonstrating their skills and providing enough chocolate to satisfy any Easter bunny.

"With camping on site, live music, food and fun on tap all day, revellers can be guaranteed an egg-cellent day out."

Lip Smacking Festival, which organised the successful Chocolate Festival in Frome, have been invited along by the pub to host a pop-up chocolate garden.

Jo Harrington, of Lip Smacking Festival, said: "The pub's gardens will become a chocolate wonderland for the day, with a selection of the region's best producers bringing their delights for you to sample."
