Welcome to Big Apple!

Big Apple in 2022

We are hoping for a more ‘normal’ 2022 and we are planning to run a Blossomtime event of some kind over the bank holiday weekend of Sunday 1st and Monday 2nd May.  This will be centred on the village of Putley around Putley Parish Hall. Details are still being considered and we will be taking note of any Covid requirements and recommendations.

Also, provisionally planned for Saturday 30th April are the 2022 Big Apple Cider and Perry Trials. We hope to be able to update past entrants and anyone else who has expressed an interest in taking part at some point in later in the year when the situation around the start of May should be clearer.

Looking even further ahead, Harvestime 2022 is scheduled for Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th October.  We ran a very successful weekend in 2021 so, hopefully, we’ll be able to do much the same this coming Autumn.

At this stage it’s not possible to provide any further details but please keep checking back for updates.

We wish you all a happy and prosperous 2022!

We ran some limited events in 2021
