"From sheep to champers!"

Friday 13 May at 12 noon (doors open 11:30)

Dateline 2012: A potential disaster in Mudgley leads to the revival of a tradition dating back more than 800 years, when the monks of Glastonbury grew vines on the south-facing slopes of the Isle of Wedmore, overlooking the Vale of Avalon.

Come and hear how a former Fleet Street newspaper editor discovered the potential of a muddy field in Somerset; find out more about how English sparkling wine has taken on the world (to the consternation of French growers).

And try some yourself!
