title PARTNER

Dyson

Dyson is a global technology company based in Malmesbury, Wiltshire. At Dyson we are inventors. Over 1,800 Dyson engineers are constantly developing new technology to solve everyday problems – like cyclonic vacuum cleaners, bladeless fans, digital motors and high speed hand dryers. We‘re working with over twenty British universities on a technology pipeline that stretches out 25 years.

We’ve grown internationally but Bath remains our local club – many Dyson people live there and keenly support the team. Bath is where Dyson and cyclone technology began; just James Dyson and two graduates building vacuum cleaner prototypes in a coach house in Bath.

Dyson is excited to be partnering Bath Rugby, a world class local team that shares Dyson‘s belief in perseverance, fighting spirit, and faith in youth.

Thatchers

Thatchers Cider has been making cider for over 100 years, and the word around us has changed quite a bit. With some things we've moved with the times, and with others we've stuck to what we know to be right, like recipes and ingredients which have been with us since 1904, or our oak vats that make our ciders so distinctive.

For four generations we've been perfecting our orchards, our craft and our cider. Today, we have a whole range - from fresh, vibrant and modern, to traditional, vintage, speciality and single variety. Our premium ciders which are loved throughout the UK are made using the most refined blend of modern and traditional techniques. Our brands include: Thatchers Gold, Katy, Thatchers Rose, Thatchers Vintage, and Green Goblin.

We own over 360 acres of orchard here in Somerset and believe that as a rurally-based company we are in a privileged position to not only produce the best quality Somerset cider to be enjoyed across the whole country, but to support and maintain our beautiful countryside for the benefit of the whole community.
