About

We have the 2014 Apple Pressing Tour now fully booked and would liek to let you all know what is going on where and invite you along to join in either as a volunteer or as a visitor. People from all walks of life are invited to have a go at using the National Trust scratter and press to turn their apples into fresh apple juice. Last year the events were incredibly well received by the communities they were in and this larger tour will give many more Bristolians the opportunity to join in with this hands on experience. The success of the 2013 tour was in its great community feel, happy and friendly people and the excitement and intrigue around the process of making apples into apple juice. There is also an opportunity to work on this tour as a one off volunteer at events, or more regularly if you prefer as a National Trust events Volunteer. It will be great fun and brilliant experience for anyone interested in public engagement, food or the National Trust in general. For more information please get in touch!
