Celebrate Apple Days on Sat 21st and Sun 22 Oct 2017 at Barrington Court.
10:30am — 4pm. This event is free, but normal admission charges apply for the venue.

The orchards of Barrington grow a mix of cider and eating apples with fascinating names such as Slack-Ma-Girdle, Brown Snout, Beauty of Bath, Crimson King, Somerset Redstreak, Tom Putt and Kingsdon Black; all the fruit is used to produce cider and apple juice.

You can watch the whole process as the skilled volunteer team crank the huge apple press into action during the weekend; it's a mesmerising sight.

Barrington has got some unusual apple games and crafts for you to try, interesting walks through the orchards, and there may well be a spot of song and dance too. There will also be experts on hand to help you identify mystery apples, and you can taste some of the old varieties still grown at Barrington.
