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. It also brings light, noise, laughter and cheer to the longer, darker winter months.
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!
WHERE: We always meet at the Goods Yard Orchard, just as you exit the platform 4 south side at Barnes Station to enter the Common.
NOTE: this event will next take place in January 2022.
