Apple Day at Woolsthorpe

Woolsthorpe Manor and apples on tree

Celebrate Apple Day on Sunday 8 October at the home of the most famous apple tree of all.

Here at Woolsthorpe our Apple Day celebrations are family-friendly, with lots of apple-y craft and scientific activities for young and old in the place where Isaac Newton was inspired by the fall of an apple. 

This year you can use apples to build crazy structures (engineering principles apply, obviously), try and make the longest peel, to make juice with an apple press and taste a variety of local Lincolnshire apples from our friends at Clumber Park. 

Find out more about Isaac Newton's 350-year-old apple tree which still stands in the orchard in front of the Manor, and be inspired yourself by this special place.

If science isn't your thing, there's also our regular monthly craft fair with a varied selection of food and craft stalls for you to browse. Entertainment will be supplied by Grantham Danserye and live music.

Come to Woolsthorpe this Apple Day!
