Apple Day Fun 2023

Halloween and Apple Day Fun 2023

Apple Day and Halloween roll around every October, bringing with them a mix of autumnal festivities and spooky fun.

The Breamish Hall first celebrated Apple Day in 2022, when an apple press was purchased for use by the whole community. It’s a chance to appreciate the rich variety of apples we have, with apple tasting, and cider making. It’s also a nod to biodiversity and local farming.

  • printing with apples
  • the longest apple peel competition
  • apple bobbing
  • craft stalls
  • light lunch of soup, bread rolls and apple-inspired cakes

Wow! That’s the reaction we’re looking for!

Funded by Arts Council England, Berwick Visual Arts, Newcastle University’s Institute for Creative Arts Practice and Northumberland County Council, the Gallery of Wonder on Tour exhibition aimed to encourage questioning of relationships between art and science, gallery spaces and museums.
