Cornish pub returns to Glastonbury


A taste of Cornish pub life will be returning to the heart of Glastonbury Festival next week, with St Austell Brewery’s hugely popular pub, The Cornish Arms.

Last year, for the first time, the brewery recreated a typical Cornish pub at the heart of the festival, offering thousands of revellers the festival’s only available cooled cask ale.

Over five days of trading, the Cornish Arms sold 30,000 pints – and this year it’s expected to be even bigger and better.

St Austell Brewery marketing director Jeremy Mitchell said: “Last year was our first time at Glastonbury and our first experience of an event on this scale.

“It was a brilliant showcase for Tribute and Proper Job, and by working with Tim Vigus, a St Austell Brewery tenant and his staff, the Cornish Arms also shone a light on the excellent talent in our pub estate.”

This year The Cornish Arms has washed up on the Glastonbury fields with a “shipwrecked” theme – complete with flying fish, blue lighting and a “mystical, underwater feel”.
