Saturday 29th September
A colourful and abundant display of all things apples: fruit, trees, apple pressing, cider-making, bee-keeping, apple foods and flavours, as well as information stands and activities including craft workshops and demonstration, a children’s activity corner, delicious food to sample and buy and two intimate music stages featuring the best Clonmel musical talents. Walk back through memory lane with a glimpse of the old Bulmers’ appleyard, taking in the smell of freshly picked apples in friendly surroundings with rustic seating and picnic tables to rediscover the pleasure of lingering – and meeting friends old and new.
Hands-on activities will include rush artist Gerardine Wisdom, basket-making demo & activity, apple-themed flower arranging with Elke Wilson, wood carving experience with David Gorey & flower plastercasting with Eileen Singleton, Beehive installation by Niamh Jones and our special biodiversity mandala and Pooh Corner, all of which will immerse you into the magic beauty of natural materials and handmade objects.
Exhibitors include Dundrum Nurseries, Irish Seedsavers, Cashel Blue cheese, Chou Cottage, The Apple Farm, David Gorey sculptor, Befani’s restaurant, Niamh’s Café
