One of our recreated sets on show, ‘Stone-in-the-Wood’, centres around the Brew Trough, where gelfling meet to enjoy Stone-in-the-Wood Brew. We’ve worked with one of the UK’s best regarded and award-winning Craft Breweries Verdant who have brewed a delicious pale ale especially for the exhibition.

Select fans that attend will be able to get hold of a can of this very limited one-off brew (details to be announced on the Dark Crystal social channels soon).

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance will launch globally on Netflix on August 30, 2019.
