Half-term week in October will find Devonport Guildhall full of apples once again. The sixth annual All Ways Apples Festival will see people from Devonport and across Plymouth creatively celebrating and enjoying this versatile fruit. The popular apple press will be juicing locally harvested apples once more.
Cookery demonstrations will show how you can save money and eat well using seasonal local ingredients. You can find out about growing and caring for fruit trees, the many different varieties of apples and their history. Children will enjoy the wonderful mix of art and craft activities and the storytelling at this family-friendly event.
All Ways Apples coordinator Tess Wilmot says; “The Festival is a fun way to share the autumn abundance of fruit and learn the skills needed to take full advantage of the harvest. Fruit can be expensive to buy, so helping local communities to learn about growing, harvesting and eating more local food has to be a good thing!”
The All Ways Apples Festival runs from 11am until 4pm on Wednesday 28th October at Devonport Guildhall, Ker Street, PL1 4EL. Entry is FREE.
