Apple Day 2020 @ YMCA Gym, Highfield Park Centre

Our fun and traditional celebration of English Apples.

There is something for everyone at our Sunday afternoon event.

You could just come along and listen to a local band whilst indulging in homemade cake with a cup of tea or coffee or run round with the younger members of the family  with Apple based games such as apple bobbing, Hunt the Apple and many more.

We have Apple juicing displays and our local bee keeper if you want to find out more of what is around Highfield Park.

But also the opportunity to support Highfield Park with the purchase of its Apple Juice from the orchards of Highfield, Cell Barnes and Hill End, the legacy of the two hospitals on the site.
