Borough Market’s acclaimed Apple Day celebration will take place on Sunday 22nd October 2017 in Three Crown Square, Green Market and Market Hall between 12-4pm.
As usual the schedule will be packed with activities for all ages, reflecting the rich heritage of the British harvest. Get stuck into a host of apple treats, try your hand at some traditional games, learn about endangered apple varieties or discover the art of cultivating orchards. Local theatre company, the Lions Part, will delight the crowd with music, songs, dancing, games and boisterous tales such as that of The Fabularium! Other entertainment will include our famous apple peeling competition, and Morris dancing.
As is tradition, Borough Market’s neighbour, Southwark Cathedral will kick off the proceedings with a short act of harvest worship in the Market, accompanied by the Market's choir. A collection will be made for the Robes Project, a local charity which provides winter night shelters for the homeless of south London.
Chef Angela Clutton will be in the demonstration kitchen between 12-1:30pm and then 2-3:30pm cooking up a range of delicious apple themed dishes including apple and chestnut soup, bramley apple snow with fennel and rosewater shortbreads and partridge with red cabbage and quick-pickled balsamic apples. From sweet to savoury, Angela has it covered, and will inspire you to try some more unusual dishes at home. The demonstration from 12-1:30pm will be BSL interpreted.
