Outside In is an opportunity to celebrate Somerset, the tradition of cider making, and the Brewhouse’s location in Coal Orchard.

The Brewhouse have commissioned a sculptor, James Lake, to create an apple tree in our gallery and lead linked community workshops during October half term (check the activity pages of our brochure or click this link to see more). Once created, the exhibit will reflect the seasons and transform into a Christmas winter land, closing with an untraditional Wassail event in January.
