Pershore Plum Festival

Quadruple award winner of Worcestershire’s Best Tourism Event and Festival, the Pershore Plum Festival returns from 2nd July to 28th August. Think Pershore, think purple, think plums!

Pershore town will be going plum crazy this summer by turning purple to celebrate the fruit that made it so famous. The Pershore Plum Festival is unique and quirky, packed with events and activities to suit the whole family. The Pershore Yellow Egg plum was discovered in Tiddesley Wood by George Crooke in 1827 and to celebrate its 190th anniversary there will be many plummy events and activities to enjoy throughout the Festival.
