Apple Rock Star, one day

Autumn and ’tis the season for apples and fruit and the richness that comes before the frost….Apple Day in Buxton

 

Our Stone and Water artists are joining the Serpentine Farm team for a day of Apple-related excitements!

 

There will be apple puppets and orchard books. There will be apple bobbing and apple pom-poms. Can you peel the longest peel? This is one of those challenges that people always rise to – or turn to, or maybe curl to like the peel that unrolls…and then snaps

 

Low applesCome and take a tour of these lovely community gardens with their flowerbeds and vegetable plots and pause for some refreshments and a chat about gardens, apples and just about anything really….we’re a friendly bunch!

 

There will be an Apple Press on site if you have fruit you would like to juice. You need to bring your own container – 2 kilos of apples give about 1 litre of juice

No tickets are needed for this event and for the Stone and Water activities at least, the activity is free and materials are provided

 

This event is part of Stone and Water’s A Year in Our Town project, aiming to deliver at least one free public event or activity every month. We are planning December decorations, January lights, wildlife walks, kite making and more – other suggestions are welcome!

We want to populate the woods with animals that might, that should or, in our wildest dreams, really ought to live there.

Make your own tiny puppets with our artists Sarah Males and Gordon (from Creeping Toad) then use your phone or one of our cameras to make your own wildlife documentary

  • Materials are provided

This event is part of the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust’s Family Activity Day in Buxton. There will be other activities in Pavilion Gardens and at Lightwood
Will there be monsters?

There might be rabbits…or badgers…or woodlice….or spiders

Will there be butterflies, and bumblebees and dragonflies clinging to fingers?

We do not know,

We cannot say,

Until wonderful ideas and nimble fingers

draw our animals into life on their cardboard shapes…
