Apples are to be at the centre of an autumn celebration in mid-Norfolk this month, as Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse hosts its annual Apple Day event.

The day will include live entertainment, including music from Klezmerized playing klezmer music from Eastern Europe, and performances from the dancers of Golden Star Morris.

Families can also enjoy watching chainsaw carver Shaun Gilbert as he expertly shapes numerous sculptures throughout the day.

There will even be the opportunity to taste some of the best apples in Norfolk, whole or pressed as juice or even as cider.

The colourful day has become a tradition at the museum and 2017 is its 27th year running. Last year the event attracted more than 2,500 people.

It takes place on Sunday, October 15 from 10am until 5pm. For more information visit the Gressenhall website.
