Old Tree Apple Festival


Held on Three Pools permaculture farm on the Welsh borders near Abergavenny, this mini-festival is a model of what festivals of the future should be - held on the last weekend of October, the gathering was spontaneous, participatory, self-sufficient, eco-friendly, small and compact and was all about great conversations, tasty apple juice and cider, mulled cider, vegan feasts, yoga, tai chi, music, fire & straw bale games in stone barns and meadow land, a Saturday night ceilidh rave and featured showers and compost loos with a view, cider and cider vinegar making demonstrations, carbon neutral teas and coffees all weekend, and celebrating being in glorious nature and countryside. We hear co-founder of the Old Tree Brewery Tom Daniell talking about his vision, Emily Rose on her fermentation workshops, the architect behind the ceilidh raves, Harry Abel, and community labyrinth creator Victoria Hulatt.

Music: The Owl Service - The Apple Tree Man (from the album 'A Garland of Song') Andrew Cronshaw - assorted tracks ('An Old Highland Air' is the closing tune) The Memory Band - Apples (from the album 'Oh My Days') John Kirkpatrick and friends - The Apple Tree Man/Apple Tree Wassail (from the album 'Wassail')
