Blossomtime Weekend 2014

It’s only a few weeks to our annual Blossomtime celebration, which will take place over the May Day bank holiday weekend (4th & 5th May).  We have ordered warm, fine weather but, as we found out at Harvestime, this cannot be guaranteed!

Harvestime 2013

We celebrated our 25th Harvestime event in and around Much Marcle in October 2013 and introduced some new activities and a new venue but the old favourites were still here as well. All details are on the Harvestime page.

Cider and Perry Trials

These will take place on Saturday 3rd May 2014 and the forms have been sent out to previous entrants  from the last 3 years).  However, if you don’t have a form you can now enter from this website. See the Trials page for more information about this event.


For an afternoon, a day or a full weekend the Big Apple Harvestime and Blossomtime Events are special opportunities to enjoy the countryside in the Herefordshire parishes on the Marcle Ridge – Aylton, Little Marcle, Much Marcle, Munsley, Pixley, Putley and Woolhope. The local orchards are famous for their cider fruit and their excellent eating apples.


We have also made significant changes to the website for 2014, in particular we are improving how it works on phones and tablets.  This is an on-going project so some links will take you back to the old site – looking at the archives for example.
