A Jolly Wassail
21 January 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Sing, dance and drum your way around our winter orchard, led by our wassail Queen. We are going to “wake up” our sleeping trees and scare away any bad spirits, to make sure that our trees give us a great 2018 harvest. We’ll learn traditional wassail songs from our folk singing Queen and make a big noise, so that we can be sure of plums, apples, quinces and medlars a-plenty at the Greenhouses this year!
So, “Was hal “ to all you gardeners, trees and plants out there and may you have a great 2018.
Dress up warmly, and bring a torch! We’ll also have mulled apple juice and cider ready too to be sure we are all in hearty voice. If you and your family would like to make crowns and noisy shakers for the wassail, join us from 3pm-4pm for our wassail family workshop.
This is a free community event suitable for all ages. Donations are welcome for refreshments.
