A Jolly Wassail

Join us in the greenhouse to make noisy shakers and wonderful wassail crowns, ready for the Jolly Wassail!

We’ll use recycled and natural materials to make percussion instruments, and craft beautiful decorative crowns to wear.

When everyone is crowned and happy with their home made instruments, we will learn songs from our wonderful wassailing musicians the Appleheads and the Norfolk Broads.

Then we will sing to our fruit trees and make as much noise as possible, to ‘wake up’ the sleeping trees and scare away any bad spirits. Our wassailing will make sure we have a bountiful harvest in 2019!

There will be plenty of tea, mulled cider and apple juice throughout.

This is a workshop for all ages.

What to bring: warm clothes, torches and any noisy instruments you fancy bringing along!

Exit from Brockwell Park via the Lido Gates at the end of the event.

Germa Adan with Merlyn Driver – Gig at the Greenhouses

We are delighted to welcome this Nest Collective gig at the Greenhouses.
Germa Adan

Germa Adan, who writes and performs a tapestry of rich vocal and stringed harmonies, is influenced by the overlapping identity with cultures, especially so in the Haitian, American and British folk influences that colour her sound. Her music is also a reflection of her eclectic and diverse life experiences, including her classical music training. She is well known for her unique use of the violin as an accompaniment to her vocals, using delicate yet intricate rhythm and harmonies.

“Her sound is captivating and honest” – Folkroom London

Merlyn Driver

Merlyn Driver was born and raised in Orkney (a group of small islands in the north of Scotland), on a smallholding without mains electricity, and didn’t go to school until his early teens. This unconventional upbringing continues to inform his music, which is influenced not just by Celtic folk but also a reverence for nature, open space and different musical traditions and genres from around the world.

Please book your tickets here

We will be serving food and drink on the night. We have plenty of chairs, but do bring a warm jumper +/coat!

 To find us, follow the signs in the park to the Community Greenhouses. We are between the Tennis Courts and the Walled Gardens. 

At the end of the event, you will leave by the Lido Gate Exit of the park so if driving, it is best to park your car on or near Dulwich Road near the Lido.
