Winter Wassail – A Community Event for all!
Join us as we make merry and celebrate the planting of our community orchards with our very own Wassail!
A Wassail is an ancient rural English celebration giving fruit growers and pickers the opportunity to drink to the good health of their fruit trees and to an abundant crop in the coming year, as well as bring light, noise and cheer to long, dark winter months. So why not join us as we make noise, make merry and share Mike’s warm mulled Cheer and tasty nibbles provided by the fab folk at OSO Arts Centre.
With a Wassail Master to oversee proceedings, St Mary’s bell ringers, and our own Wassail troubadours – this is a community and family event not to be missed!
All are most welcome to just turn up, but it would help us to plan if we have an idea on numbers. There is no charge. Donations are most welcome but in no way obligatory.
WHERE: Meet at the Former Goods Yard orchard, just as you exit the platform 4 south side at Barnes Station to enter the Common
