Thames Chase Apple Weekend
Thames Chase Forestry Centre in Pike Lane, Upminster are holding their longstanding Apple Weekend from 10am – 4pm on Saturday 16 and Sunday 17 October 2021.
They will have demonstrations, tastings, talks, performances and activities, and are looking forward to celebrating their historic farm buildings at this wonderful autumnal festival.
A selection of locally grown English apples, juices, honey and preserves will be available for tasting and purchasing, celebrating the local produce available and country crafts, such as willow weaving and woodcrafts, will be on display. There will be activities for all the family to enjoy too, including scarecrow making, children’s crafts and a trail around the site.
