osbornehouseresizedOsborne House is celebrating all things appley this weekend in honour of National Apple Day and with another great English tradition in mind, has invited local Morris Dancers to join in the fun.

‘The Men of Wight’ and ‘The Oyster Girls’ will be performing at various locations across the estate on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th October between 12:30 and 14:30.

This year has been a ‘mast year’ for the wild harvest and the produce in Osborne’s walled garden has also given a bumper crop. Visitors will have the opportunity to purchase some of the more unusual fruits including Medlar and Quince, which were popular with the Victorians and Lane’s Prince Albert cooking apples.  A recipe will be provided with each variety.
