1981 Royal Wedding - Charles and Diana
29th July 1981: Charles and Diana marry
Crowds of 600,000 people filled the streets of London to catch a glimpse of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer on their wedding day.
The couple were married at St Paul's Cathedral before an invited congregation of 3,500 and an estimated global TV audience of 750 million - making it the most popular programme ever broadcast.

Britons enjoyed a national holiday to mark the occasion.

Lady Diana, 20, arrived almost on time for the 1120 BST ceremony after making the journey from Clarence House in the Glass Coach with her father, Earl Spencer.

H. Weston & Sons Limited ("Weston's Cider") is a cider producer based in Much Marcle, Herefordshire, England. The company has been making cider in the same place since 1878 and sells more than 15 types of cider and perry, including both organic and low alcohol varieties.

Weston's most popular brand is 'Stowford Press', which is a medium, clear, sparkling cider, which can be bought in bottles or on tap from inns around the south-west and south-midlands, though it can sometimes be found further afield. Another popular brand is 'Old Rosie'. This is a strong (7.3%), dry, still and cloudy cider, very much like a traditional scrumpy. This can be bought in traditionally-shaped 2 litre glass jars, or occasionally on tap. This cider takes its name from a steam traction engine owned by the company.

Weston's ciders can be bought in many supermarkets around the country, or from their own shop, which is located within the grounds of the factory. Tours of the factory are given, and there is a wide variety of contemporary and historical cider bottles on display in its bottle museum.

Brewing started in the old stables beside The Plough Inn in April 1980. A steady expansion resulted in a new larger brewplant in 1992 as a result of the purchase of the name and brands of Sam Powell. Further expansion followed in 1996.

Young's started brewing at this site in the 1830 although brewing is believed to have been carried out on this site since 1581. It is as such the oldest site in continuous beer production in the UK. The brewery has been one of the main bastions of real ale during the keg and nitro-keg revolutions. Announced in May 2006 that by October 2006 the brewery would close and production would transfer to a new company, of which a 40% share will be owned, formed by a merger with Charles Wells to become Wells & Young's Brewing Co Ltd. Young's will continue as a pub group.
