Apple Day at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse Museum

Head down to Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse on Sunday 13th October 2019, to celebrate ‘Apple Day’. The celebration of this beloved fruit will have something for everyone, from live music and demonstrations to children’s activities and market stalls.

A whole day of fun packed themed activities, ‘Apple Day’ 2019 promises to be bigger and better than before.

Do you have a mystery apple that needs identifying, then bring it along! Visit the East of England Apples and Orchard Project to learn all about this scrumptious fruit.

Stroll around the Arena to marvel at the chainsaw carver creating masterpieces from wood and a working apple press producing apple juice.

There'll be a display of old vintage tractors and combustion engines provided by the Norfolk Internal Combustion Engine Society.

For those little legs, there is lots going on. Let them try their hand at the circus skills workshop, before enjoying a tasty treat cooked over the campfire. On the farm, crafts and Victorian fun will keep them entrained. Finishing their day by becoming a hooting owl or a scary faced pumpkin with our face painter.

In the Courtyard, grab a tasty bite to eat whilst being entertained by our Golden Star Morris Dancer’s magnificent shows. The Ceilidh band ‘Klezmerized’ will be in the Chapel, with live music this is guaranteed to get your feet moving.

This will be a fun-packed day for all the family with something for everyone of all ages to enjoy. The weather is looking good, so this is a great chance to enjoy the Norfolk countryside and experience this day with a difference.

Looking ahead, from Saturday 19th to Sunday 27th October 2019, Gressenhall will be throwing its doors open for the last time before the end of the main visitor season.

Gressenhall welcomes you for October Half Term for an action-packed week themed ‘Lighting the way for Winter’. Highlights includes creating your own lantern and beeswax candle to take home.
