Fruity fun to mark harvest

Have your say

The chance to fire fruit-and-veg superheroes will be one of the tastier attractions at a pear harvest on Sunday.

Youngsters will be able to design and decorate their favourite superheroes during workshops before firing their home-grown heroes out of a cannon to send them flying up to 100m at Cannon Hall Museum Park and Gardens, near Barnsley.

Pear-tasting, cookery demonstrations, dance, arts and opera will also be on offer at the fruity extravaganza, which runs from 10am to 4pm.
