Saturday 1 October - Monday 16 October 

To celebrate the 2022 harvest, the City of Hereford is bringing the world of the apple into the City. In the first annual Hereford AppleFest, from 1 to 16 October 2022, local businesses, councils, cider producers and community groups are banding together to provide an array of entertainment: live music, children’s activities, giveaways, themed trails, guest speakers, feasts and tastings.

At Hereford Cathedral, we will be taking part with a few activities of our own:

Family-friendly apple trail around the cathedral: take part in this self-led, family-friendly activity where you’ll discover all things apple-related, hidden in the architecture and history of Hereford Cathedral. Trails can be collected from the Welcome Desk, located just inside the North Door entrance.

Tasty treats in the cathedral café: stop by Hereford Cathedral’s café for freshly prepared food and drink. During Applefest we will be offering special additions to our menu to celebrate our local agricultural links to cider and apple production.

Keep an eye on our website and social media for information about the cathedral’s historic links with apple harvesting and cider production.
