We were very honoured to be asked along to beautiful Bignor park in Sussex by our friends at the Petworth festival to provide refreshments for the children’s literary festival. Not to be outdone by George’s marvellous medicine; a Roald Dahl story about George his grumbling grandma and a magical concoction we had brought along our own magical concoctions! For the little outdoor theatre goers Sicilian lemon and raspberry lemonade locally produced in surrey. Delicious, refreshing and served flat over ice, a true taste of summer. For the more grown up theatre goer we had Sparkling Sussex Cider from Stopham winery; a beautiful glass of fizz and apples. We unhitched the horsebox in front of the grandeur of the house and drunk in the stunning surrounding countryside. Our beautiful horse box was festooned with pimms bunting and we served it as it should be with orange, lemon, cucumber, strawberries and a sprig of mint, purely for “medicinal” purposes obviously! The interval provided us with a queue of thirsty thespians who “Roald” from the outdoor theatre over to the serving hatch looking for medicinal refreshment. We had a frantic fifteen minutes and everyone’s thirst was quenched and the final act commenced. The VBB team sank into their deckchairs with a well earned glass of chilled dry prosecco and dreamt of a team of servants fitting to our surroundings to clear up. In the words of another famous Roald Dahl character Charlie, that glass of fizz truly was the ticket, in fact it was the golden ticket!
