Village Barn and Green

Apple Day 2017 v5_smaller file.jpg

UPDATE - please see news item on this website for revised schedule due to uncertain weather conditions!! 

We are pleased to announce and invite you to Ditchling Apple Day. This will take place on Sunday 1st October 11am - 4pm.  

The venue is, as previously, Ditchling Village Green and Barn.

Please bring your apples for pressing together with clean containers for storage. Milk containers are ideal.  An added bonus is that the juice can be frozen.  
Come and tickle your taste buds with our hog roast, apple curry and other foods and refreshments available in the Barn and around the Green, particularly of a more alcoholic nature.  For the more abstemious the 'smoothie bike' will be here to make your own smoothie.  
As usual we would appreciate any donations of your favourite apple, or orchard related fruits, cakes, bakes or savouries to add to the spirit of the day.  
Activities are planned to keep all ages amused and entertained.  For the young and young at heart, come and help Ditchling Museum of Art and Craft and decorate our new Ditchling Village Orchard banner. Tony will be bringing his bees and offering tastes of different honeys. The Monday Group will be there with their lovely bird boxes.  We will have a Ditchling Orchards Map and hope you can mark it with the orchards and fruit trees you know about.  
For those more athletically inclined we will have Welly Wanging, who knowns you may be the 2017 champion.  A perfectly safe participant sport but highly dangerous for spectators.
As usual the day will end with a procession to the Orchard, led by Ditchling Morris. Do come and join us for a slightly different kind of day, always fun whatever the weather!

Admission: Free!! (Donations welcome.)
