For the next three years Thatchers Gold will be available in all of the festival’s bars along with a specially created craft cider bar which will be installed in the Williams Green area of the festival site where Thatchers Traditional, Heritage and Cheddar Valley ciders will be available on draught.

Michael Eavis, founder of Glastonbury Festival, said: “This is a particularly special thing, as not only does it mean that we’re able to bring a much loved local cider to Glastonbury but for me I see this as two long standing Somerset farming families coming together to offer something out of the ordinary.”

Martin Thatcher, managing director of Thatchers Cider said: “We’ve been asked on many an occasion when we’ll be at Glastonbury – I’m delighted to say that the time has now come.

“Glastonbury’s reputation is phenomenal, and our partnership gives us an outstanding opportunity to bring the very best authentic Somerset cider to Worthy Farm.

“The Craft Cider Bar is particularly exciting as we will have three of our traditional, oak aged ciders straight from the barrel, bringing a real taste of Somerset to festival goers.”

In line with Glastonbury Festival’s environmental ethos, Thatchers will be serving its cider in biodegradable Glastonbury Festival cups.

This year’s festival takes place from 25 to 29 June when 135,000 will descend on Worthy Farm for three days of music.

    “The cider will be served straight from the barrel”, what does that mean, as opposed to the tanker or the toilet ? Or without passing it through a in line flash cooler ? A completely meanling-less statement. What is the difference beween a craft cider and any other cider ? A load of marketing speak with no real information
