Trowbridge Apple Festival will be virtual event this year.

 

This year’s Trowbridge Apple Festival will be a virtual event and the public are being asked to take part by sharing videos and pictures of their apple trees and cooking. 

Organisers, The BIG Community Grow, are planning a range of videos that showcase some of the well-loved activities from the Festival.  Local food producers and environmental groups are being asked to share videos about their work to be released during the Virtual Apple Festival in week commencing 17th October 2020.

Members of the public are also invited to share pictures of their apple trees and apple baking.

Mel Jacob, Chair of The BIG Community Grow said: “The apple festival has been a much loved event in the Trowbridge calendar but after much consideration, it was felt the public’s safety regarding social distancing could not be guaranteed.

“It’s such a shame that we cannot put this wonderful event on for our visitors and community this year.

“In previous years it attracted hundreds of people, but we felt the risk would be too high to the public.”

Working with Wiltshire Wildlife Trust the Apple Festival plans to plant some apple trees in Biss Nature Park near Castle Mead this Autumn.  There will also be a competition where schools and members of the community can win an Apple tree to plant in their garden or school grounds.  ‘2020 has been such a challenging year, we want to try and give people something lovely to do like planting an apple tree’.

Details of competitions and how to take part and share videos will be announced shortly on Facebook and Instagram – search for Trowbridge Apple Festival

A date will be announced soon for the 2021 festival.
