Cockington Apple Festival

Cockington Apple Day 2017

Cockington Apple Festival - Sunday 20 October 

A bite-size version of the traditional day, celebrating all things Apple.

After 25 years of Apple Day we are introducing Cockington Apple Festival, a bite-size version celebrating the history, wildlife and all things apple.

Along with the tradition of the day there will be games, craft, cider and apples galore. The stalls will also be apple related.

There will be Apple Sculptures and Workshops along with the traditional Apple Press demonstrations.

Come along and join the fun!


The History of Apple Day

Apple Day started in 1993 by Brian Carter, a founder member of the Cockington Coast and Countryside Trust. Brian was a popular writer and poet, and also a contributor to the local paper for 30 years.

The event grew to be one of the biggest days on the Cockington calendar.

To celebrate its 25th year, last year's Apple Day was free. Cockington was awash with all things apple with a variety of locally sourced food and drink. There was a range of activities from creative crafts to apple themed challenges and games, while visitors were wowed by children's entertainers and cooking demonstrations. Apple Day goers enjoyed live music from local bands performing on the stage sponsored by Bays Brewery.

While the event takes place in and around Cockington Court, the resident craft makers in the studios continue to showcase their creative skills.

This year's bite-size version will be just as fun so please do join us on Sunday 20 October.
