Brew your Hedgerow

Just to confirm and remind that there will be a brewing workshop in Small World Theatre on June 21st.

The first workshop focuses on flower wines and you will start the day with a foraging walk gathering fragrant elderflowers to make a delicious collective wine at Small World Theatre. Look at the equipment needed for wine making, discover various dried and fresh seasonal flowers, learn wine making methods and troubleshooting, and of course wine tasting! Participants will have the opportunity to come back and collect a bottle of wine later in the year.
