About the event
Join us for our Wassail in Platt Fields Park on Saturday 13th January. We'll be Wassailing in the main orchard behind @plattfields_marketgarden. Meet at the garden and a procession to the orchard will be led by James Brown at 1pm.
Bring your pots and pans, toast for hanging and cider for blessing the trees. Garden open from 9am if you wanted to garden, eat or drink.
The best dressed and most Wassail spirited will be crowned Wassail Royalty, so green fancy dress is encouraged. There'll be singing and blessings to the apple gods! https://www.traditionalmusic.co.uk/folk-song-lyrics/Apple_Tree_Wassail.htm.
The event is FREE to attend.
Dan is running an introduction to apple orchard pruning workshop 11am-12pm for £5. Please bring sacouteurs and gloves if you have them, though we have some spare if not. Book your place here.
