Apple and Pumpkin Day

Sunday 28 October

Organised with Stroud Valleys Project and Stroud Buzz Club, this special day celebrates our orchards and apple harvests. Try apple pressing, learn more about why bees are so important, take a look at displays of local apples or simply enjoy tea, cake and a walk around the Autumn Walled Garden.
