Banfield Park Community Orchard Wassail Jan. 12

Saturday January 12th

Wassail – Waes Hael – “be of good health”. Olde English tradition of wassailing, dating back to the 1500s, is a ceremony to wake fruit trees from their winter slumber and scare away evil spirits, ensuring a good harvest.

 
Come awaken the trees in the Orchard. The Wassail is a family outdoor celebration, dress for outdoor conditions. Bring a mug for mulled cider and a spoon for soup. A small $ donation would be appreciated to help cover the event costs.

2:30pm – Crowning the Wassail King and Queen
3 pm – Morris Dancers 
3:30pm Wassail Ceremony – bring a mug for mulled cider
4pm – Feast – Soup and bread will be served.
