Apple Day Brighton, hosted by Brighton Permaculture Trust, has been growing annually from strength to strength and has quickly become established as an annual date for the diary for local people.

Last year saw an attending public turnout of around 6000, while we anticipate up to 8000 this year (weather permitting!). To find out what went on - including insights into who might be at Apple Day Brighton this year - visit our archive.

Although Apple Day Brighton isn't until September, plans are already afoot to make this year's event the "appliest" ever!

Each year Apple Day Brighton is organised and delivered by a large committed team comprising the core trustees, a sizable key management team and around 100 enthusiastic volunteers.

The 2015 programme will include everything you've come to expect, plus some fantastic new additions.

This ever popular event includes:

  • Apple, harvest and eco themed activities including apple identification, rural/garden skills workshops, talks, displays and cookery demonstrations
  • Orchard tours and 'scrumping' activities including apple pressing and preserve making
  • Mixed arts entertainment such as live acoustic music, dancing, theatre, puppetry, arts and craft workshops
  • Local produce sales, local organisations promotion and local resource information
  • Delicious local and sustainable catering options, bar and cafe
