Arkell’s historic festival | Swindon Viewpoint

Arkell’s historic festival | Swindon Viewpoint.

A short film from Swindon’s community television organisation, Swindon Viewpoint. This one recording a festival celebrating 170 years of Arkell’s brewery where, as their website tells: The beer is still brewed in much the same way as it was when John Arkell first made it in 1843 and the brewery buildings seem untouched by the passing years. If you speak to any of the staff about the company it is clear that everyone is still as fiercely proud of its local and family roots as John Arkell was himself.

But Arkell’s has not achieved its unique position as Swindon’s oldest company and one of the oldest traditional breweries still operating in Britain today, simply by standing still …. ‘

Possibly not quite as much fun as the real thing but there’s a virtual tour on their website!
