The humble apple is celebrated at the annual Lindley Apple Day a fun and free event that continues to a-peel to young and old alike.
An apple a day keeps everyone happy and there’s plenty to go round as Lindley goes mad for all things apple on Saturday October 15.
Apple Day in the UK was started in 1990 and the Lindley event, first held in 2013, is the brainchild of Marie-Claire Micuta and Dave Kendall-Smith.
Dave runs ‘Udders Orchard Cider and produces thousands of litres of cider and perry from apples and pears, much of it made from fruit donated by local people in exchange for some of his special brew.
Apple Day will see everything from apple-pressing, tree-pruning and grafting demonstrations to an apple pie competition and apple bobbing.
There will be a display of apples collected from around Huddersfield and there’s also an Ugly Apple competition to celebrate those apples that are so bad they’re good! Drop your entries off before 1pm on Saturday and you could be a winner.
Lindley Apple Day can be found next to the Lindley Tap and runs from 10am-2pm. Don’t forget to visit all the shops in Lindley for more apple-related fun and to vote for the best window display.
