Audley End House Taste of Autumn
September 29, 2018 @ 10:00 am - September 30, 2018 @ 6:00 pm
Celebrate all things apple at Audley End. From bobbing and weaving to trapping and tasting, apples have never been so appetising! Gobble down our Bramley treats in the tea room, see how the Victorians would have cooked a Nonsuch in the service wing, and enjoy pressing – and tasting! – Russets in the garden. Become a bobbing champion before meeting the Victorian gardener to learn how to deal with harvest pests in the orchard, while falconers show how they dealt with them in the field. Get crafty with apple themed activities. With over 150 varieties of apple in our organic kitchen garden, our expert garden team will be on hand to share top tips, tours and pruning demos for green fingered fans. All this and a local folk band playing traditional tunes throughout the weekend makes this festival the apple of everyone’s eye!
