'The Folk' set to stage two special events in Gloucester

Two special events are being lined up this autumn at The Folk of Gloucester, the historic Tudor building in Westgate Street.

On Saturday, October 17, an Apple Day is being held from 10am to 4pm. This is an annual event at The Folk celebrating Gloucestershire apples and cider making which has been taking place for the last 10 years.

Last year over 500 visitors attended the event and this year will be understandably a little different but with the following highlights:

  • Over 30 different varieties of apple found in Gloucestershire including many that are rare and not found in the supermarkets.
  • A range of ciders to try and buy from Severn Cider.
  • Lassington Oak will be giving an insight into Morris dancing with Folk music also playing throughout the building.
  • The Cider Mill will be open specially for the day.
  • The café will be open with children's activities on throughout the day.
  • Free entry to all.

Next month, The Folk will be hosting a day celebrating the Railway Industry in Gloucester for the first time. Railway Day takes place on Saturday, November 14, between 10am and 4pm.

The following highlights of the event are:

  • The Gloucester Railway Carriage and Wagon Museum will be here to tell the forgotten history of this impressive company.
  • Ian Hatton will be telling tales from the railway and reveal some surprising stories from the past.
  • The Café will be open and children's activities available.
  • Free entry to all.
