Apple Day is a National event created by Common Ground in 1989 to celebrate and raise awareness about the importance of preserving traditional apple varieties, traditional landscapes and the countryside.
Fruitscape assists at Apple Days by providing:

Below are photographs and links of some of the Apple Days that Fruitscape has been involved in.
Apple Day 2009 organised by Transition Leicester and Leicester Quakers held at the Friends Meeting House on Queens Road, Leicester.
As 2009 was the Bicentenial of the introduction of the famous Bramley's Seedling, the centerpice of the displpay is a trug of Bramley apples. As people are accustomed to the green colour of supermarket Bramleys they are surprised to see the depth of colour that they can achieve.
