Apple Day

Come along to our Jubilee Orchard to enjoy all things 'apple'. Have a go at pressing some apples, or get some inspiration for apple based desserts.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event

To celebrate National Apple Day we are having lots of apple-based fun. We have our own apple press so bring along a bottle and some of your own apples and take freshly pressed juice home with you. There will be apple bobbing (be prepared to get wet!) and some delicious apple-based deserts, made by volunteers, for you to try. Learn how to prune young fruit trees and see how you can get involved in the community orchard throughout the year.
