Apple Day is Saturday 15 October

Apple Day is an annual celebration of this ever popular fruit. It is a chance to honour what is local and distinctive to an area and to draw on traditions and knowledge that have existed over centuries. Apple Day encourages us to make use of the wonderful abundance of fruit at this time of year, apparent even in an urban setting.

At this year's event you can sample different varieties of apple, some of them never tasted before, and cast your vote for the nicest. You can watch and wonder at the freshness of just pressed apple juice.

You can enjoy home-made apple produce at our tasting table and sustainable cafe and there will be a free cup of tea to anyone that brings their own cup.

Apples are an infinite source of magic, myth and lore and this will be reflected in various activities on the day, including a children's play area, craft stalls and presentations. And if you have an apple tree and you're tired of making apple pies and puree, bring the fruit along and we'll turn it into juice!
