The Sword in the Stone Live at Dunkertons Cider!
On the evening of Friday the 16th of August ominous storm clouds were forming above Dunkertons Cider Cheltenham but this did not take away from the hilarious medieval production of the Sword in the Stone being performed by IK Productions in our cidery.
The plan was for the performance to be outside in the August sun as an outdoor theater experience accompanied with pints of refreshing Dunkertons Organic Cider. However this did not exactly go to plan and a last minute decision owing to torrential rain and winds moved the performance into our cidery.
Nevertheless the evening was a huge success and people were not dettered by the bad conditions. As soon as guests arrived at around 6:30pm they were greeted with delightfully warming pomme-frites and soup, which went down a treat. Our full range of ciders were on sale and pints were enjoyed before and throughout the show.
Despite our optimistic plans for sunshine the cidery made for an unusual yet unforgettable venue for all who came. IK Productions themselves described it as their 'most unique venue yet!.' The acoustics in the cidery made it a perfect place for such a performance. The guests included children and adults of all ages, and we kid you not when we say the laughs could be heard from one end of the cidery to the next!
After a hugely successful first live performance we endeavor to host more in the future, so keep an eye out across all our social media channels for news!
