Action for Brazil's Children
We here at Bartrams Brewery are nothing if not ahead of the field when it comes to trend setting rocking teenage combos, here is Eric Clapton, principle trombonist with 'Girls Allowed' ... okay, okay ... we got involved with doing bars for the Action for Brazil's Children charity, (A.B.C.) set up by Jimena Page, wife of Sir Jimmy Page. I had the good fortune to shake the hand that created some of the greatest riffs in Rock history Led Zeppelin
Luke, (son, a.k.a. trainee brewer) is the one with the hair, Dan, a friend, has less ... Jimmy is the one in the middle, I am holding the camera.
The 21st year of the celebrated Blackthorpe Barn Christmas Craft Market. In addition to some of the finest crafts there is also the award-winning Christmas trees.
There will be a bar available each weekend between 11am and 5pm selling a selection of beers from the Bartrams range. The bar will be called 'Bar Humbug' and the design for the pub signage is by Nicola L Robinson - thesurrealdemon.co.uk
