At the age of seven, his parents sent him to the monastery run by St. Petroc in Cornwall. While there, Kevin was kneeling, his arms outstretched in prayer, on the first day of Lent in a small hut in the wilderness when a blackbird landed in his palm and proceeded to construct a nest. Kevin remained perfectly still, so as not to disturb the bird, for the whole of Lent. Kevin was fed by the blackbird with berries and nuts. By the end of Lent, the last blackbird hatchlings had flown from the nest, which now lay empty in his hand, and Kevin returned to the monastery for the Paschal celebration.
We will be featuring 9 different ciders from the major cider producing areas of England, Kent Somerset and Herefordshire.
There will be live music all weekend, and various food offers.
We hope it will be great fun, so come and join us. If you don't like cider we will still have 3 real ales on, plus our usual selection of lagers, wines and soft drinks.
Saint Kevin needs you!
