Cider-making to take place at county museum
7:30am Tuesday 2nd October 2012 in News
CIDER-making demonstations will be taking place on Sunday at the County Fair outside Hartlebury Castle’s 300-year-old cider mill.
Vistors at the County Museum will also be entertained by falconry displays, the English folk dancing society and local folk trio Granny’s Attic.
Craft demonstrations will showcase traditional techniques including basket weaving, spinning, blacksmithing and other rural crafts.
Inside the museum visitors can watch displays of butter and bread making.
An apple-tasting activity will help children to learn how to identify the various types of apple grown in the UK and the museum café will also be serving an assortment of apple-related meals and autumn specials.
Rachel Robinson, visitor experience manager, said: “This promises to be a fun, family day which gives visitors the chance to see cider being made in the traditional way as well as observe traditional skills and crafts, falconry, and music.
"Apples are not as plentiful this year so we are hoping visitors will get involved by donating some apples to be added to the hopper and in return they can bring along a small bottle and take away some of the freshly squeezed juice.”
