TENBURY Applefest will give bakers the chance to show what they are capable of doing.

An apple-pie making competition is one of the attractions at the annual festival of the apple.

It will take place on the Burgage in Tenbury on Saturday, October 1.

Bakers are asked to bring their apple pies that must have a crust and base for judging that starts at 10am with the winner announced 90 minutes later.

Baking is not the only competition as there is also a chance for photographers to demonstrate their creativity on the theme of ‘the apple'.

Prints measuring 10 inches by eight inches should be brought for judging but the organisers will not be able to return the prints and will announce the winner a few days after the Applefest.

The day will include a display of more than 250 varieties of apples by Frank P Matthews and the Marcher Apple Group will be on hand to identify different apples. People are asked to bring three of each of the apples that they want identified.

There will also be an opportunity for people to have their apples turned into juice of Appleteme who will have a stand at the show along with many other exhibitors.

Visitors to the festival will have a chance to buy a variety of apple related products and do some early Christmas shopping.

Teme Valley Alpacas will be on the Burgage providing treks and Trevor Hill will bring along some of his exotic animals.

Entertainment will include singing by children from schools in Tenbury and the Teme Valley, the Tenbury Teme Valley Band, Bandemonium, the Royal British Legion Singers, Leominster Morris Dancers and the Bromyard Town Crier will also put in an appearance.
