Thatchers Cider will be at Glastonbury Festival again this year.
In the second of its three year partnership with Glastonbury, Thatchers Gold will be on tap in the Festival’s bars.
The family-run Somerset cidermaker will also be hosting four of its own craft cider bars, which will feature its traditional oak aged ciders, Heritage and Cheddar Valley. The open fronted bars will be situated around the site at Williams Green (where Thatchers had its own bar area in 2014), and also between the Pyramid and Other Stage, near the band stand and one close to the John Peel Stage.
Martin Thatcher, Managing Director and fourth generation cidermaker at Thatchers Cider says: “We’re delighted to be back at this amazing festival.
“We want our four new craft cider bars to give Festival goers a real West Country welcome. Situated across different parts of Worthy Farm, there will be plenty of opportunity to experience the many different styles of Thatchers’ authentic Somerset cider.”
Michael Eavis, founder of Glastonbury Festival comments, “We’re in the heart of Somerset and having great cider here is a must. Our friends at Thatchers are in their second year with us, we hope it’s a relationship that will continue for many years to come.”
Thatchers will be serving its cider in biodegradable Glastonbury Festival cups, in line with the Festival’s environmental ethos.
This year’s Glastonbury Festival takes place from 24 to 28 June, attracting 135,000 ticketholders, over 40,000 staff and performers and a worldwide BBC TV audience running into millions.
