Discover the urban orchard

An exhibition of horticultural history, for fans of fruit

Orchard Cardiff on harvesting duty

Visitors to the Cardiff Story museum will soon be able to delve into the secrets of the city’s tasty gardens, thanks to Orchard Cardiff’s exhibition. 

The museum on The Hayes is hosting a new exhibition in conjunction with Orchard Cardiff, who promote fruit trees in the capital. Lucie Connors, Community Curator at the museum, describes the exhibition as interactive, fun, and engaging. She continues, “People can discover how growing fruit trees has formed an important part of Cardiff’s horticultural history and explore the variety of fruit trees grown in the city.” 

The exhibition launches on 3 December with a talk about fruit production in the nineteenth century. There will be mulled apple juice and fruit cake, and it will be free and open to all.
