Sandford-based Thatchers cider is becoming the official drink of Glastonbury Festival – meaning Thatchers Gold will be available at all the onsite bars.

A cider bar will also be installed at the festival, where Thatchers Traditional, Heritage and Cheddar Valley ciders will be available on draught.

Managing director Martin Thatcher has formed a partnership with Michael Eavis, the founder of the festival, for the next three years.

Mr Eavis 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.”
