There'll be apple games and art & crafts for all ages. Plus refreshments- delicious, hearty snacks made from food surplus, and of course... juice!
The event is a collaboration between the Castle Garden team and food campaigners Feedback.

We've got a great schedule planned for May Day... a celebration of hedgerows!
