Locally Brewed – Artist in Residence

Inspired by tales provided by Belthorn residents, writer Adam Hughes has created four short stories that focus on one community, the Belthorn community.

Locally Brewed was commissioned by Inn Crowd when lockdown meant that live performances were no longer possible in pub venues during 2020. Instead, Adam spent the summer remotely gathering words and gaining an insight into Belthorn life.

The resulting project ‘Locally Brewed’ comprised of four audio stories and a special edition newspaper. The audio stories were launched on 14th November 2020 to coincide with the 5th anniversary of the pub being community owned. Each Belthorn resident received a copy of The Dog’s Life newspaper and VIP’s were invited to share a drink over a virtual showcase of the audio stories alongside the writer and key Inn Crowd partners.
