Apple-themed celebrations at Barnard Castle
A SERIES of apple-themed events are taking place in a North-East market town.
The Love Food project inviting visitors to celebrate the fruit in Barnard Castle on Saturday.
Although National Apple Day takes place later this month, the events in Barnard Castle are taking place early to coincide with the monthly farmers market in the town.
Attractions include making apple crumbles and toffee apples, apple bobbing, children’s activities and pressing apples into juices.
Visitors are also invited to bring along their own garden apples to show an apple identification expert, who will be in attendance.
Chef and restaurateur Andrew Rowbotham, from The Crown at Mickleton, in Teesdale, will be serving a hog roast and Veg Out in Barney will run a craft activity for children.
The Love Food activities, including the hog roast, take place in and around Woodleigh, on Flatts Road, in the town, between 10.30am and 3.30pm and the market will be held on the cobbles in the town centre.
There will be treasure hunt to find apple-themed products at the market, the winner of which will be drawn at 1pm.
Angela Whiting, assistant to the director of Love Food, said: “We have lots of locally grown apples and have tried to put together as many activities as possible for both adults and children.”
