Cambridge University Botanic Garden Apple Day 2019

Join us for the region's largest Apple Day on Sunday 20 October 2019, 10am-4pm

Highlights including....

* Apple tasting: over 2 dozen delicious, locally-grown heritage varieties from the region to try and buy
* Apple identification: Cambridgeshire has lost the great majority of its orchards in the last 50 years, but heritage varieties may be surviving in private gardens, often carved out from the last remnants of ancient orchards and it may well be that someone will bring a lost heritage variety to light…the apple aficionados at the East of England Apples and Orchards Project will be on hand to identify apples – visitors should bring along two to three apples from each mystery tree, preferably with a leaf and stalk attached, to help with accurate identification
* Apple cultivation: expert advice on what to grow, how to plant and prune for a bumper crop


* Apple activities: get crafty with a variety of apple activities in the Schools' Garden for the young and young-at-heart
* Apple produce: the Garden's Main Lawn Marquee will be bursting with locally produced, delicious edibles including hedgerow cordials, fruit-flavoured spirits, hand-pressed juices and ciders, specialty teas, chocolates & artisan cheeses for sale

Other entertainment:

* free Garden seasonal highlight tours (downloadable schedule available closer to the day)
* live music
* pop-up food trucks to keep you refuelled
* other local craft stalls and sales

Please note: there is an extra charge for visiting the Garden on Apple Day, ticket prices include full garden admission and we strongly recommend you purchase them in advance via one of the ticket offices or online before the day to avoid the queues.
