Big Apple is Much Marcle’s annual harvest time celebration of all things apple. It usually takes place on the second weekend in October and you can read more about it on the Big Apple website.
Events take place all around the village. You can indulge yourself in apple teas in the Memorial Hall. Climb the church tower and see the bell ringers in action. Walk around the historic orchards at Awnells Farm (owned by the Countryside Restoration Trust), visit one of the village’s cider producers, enjoy cider and apple themed dishes at one of the village’s pubs or restaurants.
Visit Hellens and enjoy the stunning display of apples of pears.
Big Apple wouldn’t be complete without apple teas in the Memorial Hall.
