Hereford AppleFest Kick Off Event

Head to Hereford High Town on Saturday 1 October for the Hereford AppleFest Kick Off featuring live music, performances, children’s activities, exhibitions, trails, the Saturday market and more!

Live music starts from midday on the Encore Stage and features something for all the family, including local acts, bands, choirs, and community music – headlined by the legendary Doctor and the Medics at 8pm.

Whilst you’re there visit the CAMRA Cider Marquee for local artisan ciders and apple juice, take in HCA Art & Design students’ exhibition at the old Laura Ashely shop, stumble upon pop-up performances from HCA Performing Arts Students, and experience Rural Media’s apple orchard exhibition at 1 Gomond Street.

There will be plenty of free activities to keep the little ones busy! Located at the Kids’ area outside M&S you’ll find a hefty bunch of apple themed craft activities provided by the Carnival Arts Group, such as wand, necklace and crown making, bunting, drawing and a chalk wall.

The Saturday market will still be there too, located along Commercial Street.

The Hereford AppleFest Kick Off event is part of the first annual Hereford AppleFest, which is taking place from 1 to 16 October 2022. For more information please visit:
