Trowbridge to stage second apple festival
After a successful inaugural event last year, Trowbridge Apple Festival will return again on October 12 at Courtfield House in Polebarn Road, Trowbridge.
Located at the old orchard in the grounds of Courtfield House, the event will include apple juice making, a talk and advice from an apple expert, and sampling and cooking apple varieties.
The event also offers live music and Morris Dancers, a chance to meet the animals from Larkrise Farm and crafts and games for all the family.
Organised by the town museum, Wiltshire Wildlife Trust and The Big Community Grow, the festival will run from 11am to 3pm and entry is free.
Mel Jacob, project leader at The Big Community Grow, said: “We want it to become an annual event and we want each year to be bigger and better than the last.
“It’s been a great year for growing apples, with everyone having bumper harvests, so hopefully the weather stays nice on the day now.
“There is more entertainment this year and we are also inviting bakers to bring along their apple pies, which will be judged by our panel. It should be another very fun event, with lots on offer for adults and children.”
