Apple Day is one of Ely’s best loved festivals and sadly this year, Visit Ely can’t deliver the whole event!
However what we are bringing to Ely is a ‘mini’ Apple Day, outside Oliver Cromwell’s House, Saturday October 17th from 10 am – 4pm.
This year, it maybe tiny in comparison, but we are still celebrating and have a variety of things to see and do! There is a really exciting competition to enter where you have to find all the apples, all hidden in our wonderful Ely independent shops, and be in with a chance of winning a whopping £30.00 voucher from Cutlacks! To find out more, come and see us on the day!
Our friends from Watergull Orchards are joining us for the day and will be supplying their wonderful Apple Juice and available to chat to visitors about all the different varieties of apples, which are also available to purchase!
Ely museum are also joining in the celebrations with a superb Quiz and Wordsearch and more, so come along and pick up a copy!
Don’t forget to get your ‘peeling practice’ in, as we are running our hourly ‘longest peel’ competition, together with other free activities throughout the day.
Now in it’s 21st year, we must remember that Ely’s Apple Festival has established itself as one of the best, and longest running apple events in the region, and despite the current situation, let’s not forget this year, and still celebrate.
Anna Bennett, Visit Ely Event Manager said ‘The festival, over the many years, has provided the community with interest and intrigue whether you are interested in the either the educational, environmental aspect, or just want to come along, and have some fun!
