Worcester celebrates Oak Apple Day

The Commandery in Worcester will be bringing to life the little-known English celebration of Oak Apple Day as part of its programme of authentic, historic events.

Oak Apple Day Celebrations
Sunday 27 May (1.30–5.00pm) and Monday 28 May (10.00am–5.00pm) at The Commandery, Worcester.

Enjoy two days of traditional spring-time festivities at The Commandery, including live theatre, living history, family games and Morris dancing. The spectacular Grade I listed Commandery in Worcester will be festooned with garlands of oak leaves to celebrate the story of Charles II’s restoration. Find out about his flight from Worcester, after his Royalist army was famously beaten by the Parliamentarians during the final battle of the English Civil War in 1651, and how he hid in an oak tree to escape!

Adults £5.95 (Concessions £4.95), Children FREE, Annual ticket £10.95
