James Crowden on Cider Country
Thursday 14 October at 6.00- 7.00 pm St Michael's Church Shute
Cider-making has been at the heart of country life for hundreds of years. But the fascinating story of how this drink came into existence and why it became so deeply rooted in the nation’s psyche has never been told. In order to answer these questions, James Crowden traces an elusive history stretching back to the ancient civilisations of Central Asia and the Mediterranean – and even the wild apple forests of Kazakhstan. Cider Country is the unusual and enthralling story of Cider and the remarkable people who have made it. James will be in conversation with writer and journalist Martin Hesp.
