Logistics

Apple land is in South Wales, in the foot hills of the Black Mountains in the Brecon Beacons. Although it may sound completely remote its actually only 45 minutes from Bristol!

We are organsing the event from Brighton, but our co-founder Nick now lives @ Three Pools - the inspiring permaculture farm where this event takes place.

Three Pools is a 4.5 hour journey from Brighton. We have booked THE BIG LEMON BUS to take everyone to and from the event as comfortably and ecologically as possible.

This coach service leaves Brighton station (from outside The Jury’s Inn) at midday on the 24th of October to get people to the festival in daylight. Tickets for the Big Lemon are £49 and small well behaved dogs (as well as people) are allowed at your own risk. The coach tickets will be onsale until wednesday the 23rd for eveyone needing a lift.

The event starts at 7 pm on Thursday the 24th of October with the welcome feast. It would mean a lot if eveyone could attend the whole event to see the theme unfold and get the full experience.

We are encouraging everyone to use our facebook page to share lifts to Apple Land and it may also be worth posting your lift on – https://www.blablacar.co.uk/.

If you cannot make the whole event but would still like to make it to Apple Land – you can buy a single day ticket HERE. This includes 24 hours and three communal meals in Apple Land.

Food

The food is one of the most special and important parts of Apple Land. For as long as we have been apple picking and pressing in he west of England and Wales – our great freind, Amy Bramwygn has been cooking the most delicious vegan meals for us. The ingredients are wholefoods from Infinity Foods, and fresh seasonal veg which we source as locally and ethically as possible before the event - straight from small farms, such as Barcombe Nurseries.

The meals are buffet style and we all eat together for the coversations.

There are always gluten free options available and the meals are 100% vegan. Please message us on:

oldtreeecoop@gmail.com to register your dietary preferences with our chefs.

Drinks

Ther most delicious golden Apple Juice will be flowing all weekend and everyone is welcome to try it straight from the press.
We will also have mulled juice and mulled cider heated all weekend on our carbon capture fires.

The afforbable Old Tree bar will be open from 6pm every evening – please bring cash or card to pay for your fermented drinks, which will help us to continue to #growoldtree.

There will be several delicous seasonal flavours of Kombucha available as well the mulled apple drinks. We’ll be making a special Apple Land ‘Ginbucha’ – our best-selling cocktail crafted with Brighton Gin.

We will also have a Wild mohito cocktail with hedgerow botanicals and rum.

The beer available will be local cask Ale from Bristil Beer factory and some cans by Good Things brewery - our freinds creating the worlds’ most sustainable beer brewery in Kent.

Kids policy

You are welcome to bring your children to Apple Land at your own risk.

Whilst none of the activities are dangerous - there are plenty of potential hazards in the working farm landscape of Three Pools, where our event is held. These include open ponds and old buildings. We have a risk assemement for our fires and apple pressing but parents will need to be watchful of their children throughout the event to make sure they are safe. We can create safe spaces but cannot be held responsible if your kids choose to roam free and cause themselves any injury.

We have booked a fantastic entertainer called John who is offering some fun games like (compostable) baloon animal scultpture.

Please also make sure to bring plkenty of warm clothes and WATERPROOF footwear for kids as cold temperatures can make them unhappy otherwise. Thank you.
