Blossom picnics- Birmingham’s own Hanami

Spend the day under the blossom trees in the heritage orchards of the Historic Gardens.
With apple and pear blossoms instead of the traditional Japanese plum, this version of Hanami still echoes the tradition of enjoying the beauty of the flowers this Spring.
A picnic in the Gardens is always enjoyable, however, the orchards in full bloom also provide the perfect setting for your relaxing day out.

Traditional Japanese food by Pika Pika will be available on the day, with a selection of delicious sushi and curry available.

Bring your own food and drink too. Cafe open for light refreshments
Music and other activities likely! Take part in learning how to create beautiful origami creations.
Normal entrance fees.

Harvest and Apple Day

A day to celebrate all the good things nature has brought us…our apple harvest is in, our pumpkins still going…

Join us to see how well the harvest has been this year… will the hot summer and lack of rain mean less food? How have the plants and animals fared and is there store enough to last the winter?

Whatever the weather we will, this Sunday, be having fruit and veg displays,  apple and juice tasting, family crafts and other entertainments.

Jacaranda recorder ensemble will soothe our troubled brow with appropriate tunes and airs.

Cakes will be consumed, jam will be jarred,  faces will be painted and pumpkins will be found.

Bring any apples from your own trees or have harvested from trees on common land. Have a go at crushing them here and take away the really fresh taste (Bring a bottle to fill with your own juiced apples. )

A day of sharing, swopping recipes, sharing cooking secrets and making. 

More activities confirmed nearer the date
