🎭 enjoyed a specially-commissioned performance at @HallForCornwall;
🍎 officially opened Kay's Cyderhouse at @HealeysCyder Farm.
Healey's Cornish Cyder Farm - known for producing the alcoholic beverage Rattler Cyder - said the new space would include the introduction of new apple bays, an innovative water transportation system, and an additional apple press which would 'double its processing capacity and improve the quality of its apple juice'.
The Duke of Edinburgh was also taken on a tour of the farm - including three of its 52 tonne bays pressing one million apples - to see the new facility in action.
Healey's Cornish Cyder Farm said the new process would involve filtered rainwater, less bruising and damage to the apples, which would result in less carbon being released into the atmosphere, in its commitment for a 'greener future'.
