The Wassail *CANCELLED*
DUE TO COVID THIS HAS NOW BEEN CANCELLED. PROVISIONAL DATE FOR NEXT YEAR IS 15 JAN 2022
Bonfires, pots, pans, clatter, commotion and a volley of shotgun blasts! The ancient Anglo-Saxon tradition of Wassailing involves waking tree spirits and blessing the orchard, and shooing off pesky evil demons to ensure a bountiful crop in the year to come. Hot mulled cider and pizza nibbles are provided in abundance to keep you warm during our winter celebration. Entertainment includes the wassail play form the Brown Paper Mummers, the fire dance from Great Western Morris and the ceremony MC’d by our local green man.
Doors from 7pm. Open until 10pm.
Warm mulled cider or apple juice on arrival.
Wrap up warm; it will be chilly!
Bring something noisy (pots, pans, your favorite kazoo etc).
Be prepared for loud noises, fire and shotgun blasts.
