OAK APPLE DAY

St Neot Cornwall

 

 

Oak Apple Day is a traditional annual event in the village. In the tradition of all great village feast days, it is an opportunity for villagers to continue a time-honoured tradition whilst having fun celebrating together as a community.

 

 

 


 

Come and join in the celebrations - why not wear a period costume? You are very welcome to come to the barbeque  after the Tower story, watching the branch being hauled up the tower and listening to the bells ringing.

 

 

 



In 2012/13, the St Neot Historians received a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to enhance record and archive the Oak Apple Day celebrations during May 2013. Below is some information about the events that year.

 

 

 

 

 

Many local organisations took part in the 2013 celebrations. The W I encouraged its members to dress in period costume for the occasion.
