So, Jack Johnson was the very first headliner to be announced for the 2010 Eden Sessions and last night tickets went on sale to the general public. And wow! what a response. Because the man is sooo popular we had an absolutely huge demand for tickets when they went on sale at 6 pm (Monday February 8). There was a huge rush on the website and telephone - in fact one of the highest we have had since the Sessions began. This meant that not everyone could get through to book. To help cope with the demand our lovely Box Office team stayed here until 11 pm so that people had a better chance of getting through by phone as well as the website. Fans continued to book online all night and the Session sold out overnight.
We'll be making further announcements on the rest of the 2010 Eden Sessions headline acts in due course.
We're up for an award in the 2010 Gardeners' World 'Gardens to Visit Guide Awards'. Categories include 'Favourite Garden' and 'Best Kids Day Out'. Cast your vote here: http://www.gardenersworld.com/gardens-vote/region-south-west/
Sloes, rosehips and hawthorn berries, picked by Eden staff in October, have been used to create a new seasonal beer. Winter Berry Ale is the latest addition to the Sharp's Brewery Seasonals range and is available in pubs across the country and in the Eden Project’s own restaurants and bars.
Winter Berry is a cask conditioned beer with a dark ruby colour, full of vibrant berry flavours, with the sharp fruitiness of the berries balanced and enhanced by the use of top quality malts and hops.
Tracey Smith, Eden's Commercial Relationship Manager, said: “It's great to have worked with Sharp's on this range, combining our plant expertise with their brewing know-how. Together, we have produced a selection of beers showcasing the best local ingredients that are proving to be a hit with drinkers.
