Burwash Manor is welcoming back its annual celebration of the countryside, with apples at its (ahem) core. A fun-packed family event taking place on 8 October, there will be yummy treats to eat, rides on a miniature steam train, traditional fairground rides, and displays of many traditional activities like basket and willow weaving and (less traditional) chainsaw sculpting. Sawston Steel Band will be providing music, and Jezo the Magician will keep little ones entertained with his wacky tricks.
You can bring along your own apples to get them identified by the experts if you like, as well as getting them juiced and pulped, and there will be all sorts of appley games and stalls to enjoy too.
All the fun is in aid of an excellent cause too, with the Apple Day helping to raise money for the Sick Children’s Trust. Over £5,500 was raised for this wonderful charity at last year’s event, and they’re hoping to make even more this year.
Entry is £3 for adults, and under 12s are free. All profits go to the Sick Children’s Trust.
