The Big Apple 2017 highlights

Blossom time 2017 leafletIt’s back and as bewitching as ever – Blossomtime 2017 takes over Putley and the five surrounding parishes in rural Herefordshire this Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday.

Wander through the blossoming trees with local guides, head to the Grand Tasting to catch up with some of the region’s top ciders and perries, and taste – and meet – some of the winners from The 2017 Big Apple’s Blossomtime’s Cider & Perry Trials

Sustain yourself with a ploughman’s lunch and an apple tea.

Sunday’s highlights include haiku poet David Walker Walking to the Wonder, folk music from Fiddlers Two. Monday, don’t miss renowned author Pete Brown sharing the magic and mythology of the apple from his captivating book, The Apple Orchard, previously serialised on BBC Radio 4.
