From beekeeping sessions to tours of the historic orchard and walled garden at the centuries-old former home of the Bishop of London, the family event is set to take place on Sunday 3 October.

Running from 11am to 3pm, the vibrant Apple Day celebration will be soundtracked with music from acoustic duo Two Piece Temple, with their instruments including piano, guitar and ukulele.

Now in its eighth year, the Apple Day activities will take place across Fulham Palace’s 13 acres in Bishop’s Avenue.

Younger children can enjoy face painting, hands-on music-making, and group craft sessions, while a crafts and food market will take place throughout the garden.

Great British Bake-Off fans can share their own culinary skills in an apple cake baking competition, with categories for adults and juniors.

Meanwhile, ticketed activities include autumn wreath making, storytelling sessions and adventurous games.

“Apple Day is a wonderful community celebration of the harvest and nature, and I’m delighted to say that following a slightly quieter 2020, we’ll be back with some new events and old favourites,” explained Anja Herman, Apple Day organiser at Fulham Palace.

“This year, visitors can take part in pre-booked and drop-in activities, as well as showing off baking skills honed in lockdown at our ever-popular apple cake competition! I can’t wait to welcome everyone back to see what we’ve got in store.”
