Enjoy Autumnal Celebrations in the City at the RHS London Harvest Festival on 6-7th October (Lindley Hall, Greycoat Street, Westminster SW1P 2PE), where Richard Hood and Nick Moyle (the Two Thirsty Gardeners) will be demonstrating how to make some of the recipes from their book, Brew It Yourself.
Just as the leaves begin to turn, the annual celebration of seasonal bounty that is the RHS London Harvest Festival Show returns to the heart of the city from 6–7 October, celebrating the abundance of produce that the autumn harvest brings.
Visitors have the chance to see, taste and buy fresh autumnal produce from some of the UK’s leading nurseries, growers and independent food producers. Among the range of colourful fruit and vegetables on show will be the astonishing entrants in the RHS Heaviest Pumpkin Competition, with professional and amateur growers competing for the top prize of £1,000.
This year the show has a special focus on one of Britain’s favourite fruits, the apple. The Two Thirsty Gardeners (Richard and Nick) will be on hand to demonstrate how to make homebrewed cider with recipes from their new book Brew it Yourself, which will also be available to buy at the show. As well as sampling the cider, visitors will be able to taste and purchase a range of delicious apple cultivars from RHS Garden Wisley and gain expert advice from the RHS Gardening Advice team.
On 6 October, the show stays open until 9pm when there will be additional pumpkin carving, apple bobbing, seasonal fruit cocktails from the Midnight Apothecary, food and live music – giving Londoners unable to attend the show during the day the opportunity to celebrate the harvest season in style.
Make sure you pop on down to taste some cider, and learn how to Brew it Yourself!
