Traditional Apple Wassail

Posted on 24th January 2018 by Lauren Parry

Saturday 17th February, 1.30pm – 3.30pm, Ravenscraig Walled Garden

Join us to celebrate our bumper apple harvest of 2017! We have revived the ancient custom of ‘wassailing’ with an annual celebration in our Community Orchard at Ravenscraig Walled Garden. The word ‘wassail’ comes from the Anglo-Saxon phrase ‘waes hael’, which means ‘good health’.

Come and join us for some winter amusement to keep away the cold and gloom. We’ll be performing a traditional wassail which will include storytelling, singing, poems, and noise to welcome the new growing year and say thanks for a fruitful harvest. You can also sample traditional wassail drinks and food made from apples.

Please dress warmly, with appropriate winter footwear for uneven ground.

No booking required – just come along.
