Apple Weekend at Snowshill Manor

Event ended

Editor's Choice

Snowshill Manor will be hosting its annual Apple Weekend in celebration of the humble fruit, with plenty of local varieties making an appearance.

At the height of apple season Snowshill Manor is once again set to celebrate the humble fruit with a special event exploring the huge variety of different types of apple grown in the region.

Organisers say Snowshill’s gardeners have tracked down samples of traditional and unusual varieties for the event, which takes place on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 October 2012, for their displays in the beautiful setting of the terraced hillside garden.

In previous years they collected an incredible 289 different types, with 46 grown on site, including local specialities such as Gloucester Royal, Tewkesbury Baron and Gilliflower of Gloucester.

Tastings of fruit, juices and ciders will form part of the two-day event, and visitors will also have the chance to see a juicing machine in action and meet local apple tree growers, while children are sure to enjoy Snowshill’s Apple Trail.
