Big Apple celebration Hereford October 12th – 13th
October 12 @ 10:30 am - October 13 @ 5:00 pm
Share the Tradition of Apple Growing and Cidermaking
Celebrate English apples and cider in the 31st year of the Big Apple Harvestime Weekend – a real opportunity to enjoy the autumn countryside in this corner of Herefordshire in and around Much Marcle.
A collection of small rural events where you can enjoy local orchards, famous for their cider fruit and excellent eating apples.
In this unique event, farms and orchards will open their cider mills and barns for you to visit. Nine special venues in all, each one of them different but all with one thing in common – apples!
Your programme is entirely flexible – you can choose where and when to go for an afternoon, a day or a full weekend. You can simply go for a walk or to buy some apples. But you can also visit several different venues and events.
Of course you can use your car to get around. But many of the venues are in walking distance of each other, and cycling is also a great way to get about. Distances are indicated on the map.
A tractor and trailer service, kindly provided by Westons Cider, will be running all weekend carrying visitors between six of the venues. The service is free but donations will be welcome.
You can download a copy of of the printed brochure from the website with the events and map if you want to have a paper copy you can carry with you (copies will be available at all the venues).
