Apples and Pears Events List
MAN tries to include details of all relevant events within the Marcher Counties and the more significant national events. (Pictures from a number of events can be found in the Photograph Gallery). Courses, however, are listed separately. If you are organising or know of a forthcoming event which you think should be included here then please contact the Webmaster. If you spot an error would you also please let the Webmaster know so a correction can be made.
For other events you may find the following useful
- The Three Counties Cider and Perry Association’s Events List is specific to cider and perry and mainly covers events in the three counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire.
- Herefordshire CAMRA are strong supporters of local Cider Makers and associated events.
- The National Trust organises apple events at many of its properties (Telephone 0870 458 400 for details).
It is always advisable, especially if you intend to travel from some distance, to confirm the time and details from the organisers.
At events where Marcher Apple Network will be present (shown with dates in bold) pomological advice will be available and books and CDs will be for sale. At events marked with an asterisk there will be an apple display and MAN will provide an identification service. Please note that for identifications three typical specimens of apple or pear are required and that there is a charge.
