About Hereford AppleFest Banquet 2022
Hereford City Council hosts the AppleFest Banquet at the Historic Town Hall.
To celebrate the inaugural Hereford AppleFest, the City of Hereford's historic Town Hall will host an apple-themed banquet on Saturday 8 October at 7pm.
Our region has the perfect soils and weather to grow the finest apples in the world, not to mention centuries of experience in crafting fine apple juice, cider and perry.
Guests are invited to celebrate the 2022 harvest with Martin Carter’s (Saxtys' Executive Chef) unique, apple-infused menu, with local ingredients, each of the dishes matched with ciders and perries from some of the region's leading producers - including Newton Court, Ross on Wye Cider and Perry Company, Little Pomona and Oliver’s.
The banquet will take place in the majestic Assembly Hall, the scene of many lavish banquets over the 120 year history of the Grade II listed Town Hall. With its magnificent ornate ceiling, beautiful stained glass, and atmospheric oak panelling, don’t miss the chance to sample this exquisitely designed menu celebrating Herefordshire’s special relationship with the apple in this unique setting.
This experience is certain to book up quickly!
Tickets: £60 including welcome drink, key-note speakers, three course meal with matching ciders and perries, and coffee and mints at the close. Vegan/vegetarian/special dietary alternatives are available.
