We are pleased to announce that Apple Day 2019 will take place on Sunday 6 October.
This is an extra-special year because it marks the 10th anniversary of Cambridge Apple Day.
By way of celebration, I dug out some photos of the inaugural event in 2009. Note the tiny apple tump and the semi-lethal ‘apple mill’. Ah, all good fun.
The stats for the day were apparently:
“40 gallons of apple juice pressed – 5 gallons of cider drunk – 3 kilos of belly pork and 1 kilo of sausages consumed in 50 bread rolls – 1 minor injury from a flying splinter while operating the scratter – no arrests for trespass while scrumping (unbelievably) – no reports of E. coli”
Amazing to think how far we’ve come.
We’ll post more details in the coming weeks. For now, hold the date in your diary and start spotting apple trees for scrumping. Apple crops are looking pretty good this year.
It would be really great if you could let us know whether you’re coming so we can plan for catering, so please email us to let us know you’re coming.
Apologies to those who have asked, but the Cambridge Apple Day is still an invite only affair. We currently hold it in Phil and Jane’s back garden, and while we may open it up to the public one day, we aren’t able to do that yet.
Looking forward to seeing you on the 7th!
Jane, Phil & the apple day massive
