Cider Reimagined at the Abergavenny Food Festival

Drink Theatre
£16.50

orget everything you know about cider. Far from the fizzy sweet drinks lining our shelves today, in the 17th and 18th century the great ciders of the time sat on the tables of nobility, served in elaborate stemware and revered as highly as wine.

Repton Literary Festival – Miracle Brew

27th October 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
£7

Miracle Brew is a globetrotting adventure through the nature of beer. Recent research shows that only 22% of people know what beer is made of, which is bizarre when you consider it's the third most popular drink in the world – after tea and coffee. At Repton Literary Festival, I'm delighted to be showcasing the incredible stories behind malt, yeast, hops and water, after which you'll understand that beer is the product of its unique terroir and will probably never…

Backyard Bar and Comedy Club, Witan St
London, E2 6JS United Kingdom
+ Google Map
£6.50 – £7.50

I love Nerd Nite - fascinating and funny speeches from people who care about all sorts of stuff. This time I'll be using the excuse that it's Wassail Week to talk about the hidden magic and mystery of apples. From the event website: The apple is so ubiquitous, it’s almost invisible. Like air or water, we take it for granted. But why, of all fruits, is the apple so embedded in our history and culture? On the eve of Wassail…
