Come and join in a Wassailing Celebration at the Community Orchard on January 28th.
There will be a normal work day in the orchard from 10am to 12 noon, followed by the wassailing celebration from 12 till 2pm. The Apple Wassail is traditionally performed in the winter to bless the trees with songs and offerings of cider.
There will be an informal workshop to learn some wassail songs, including a newly written Edinburgh Wassail and a song specific to the trees in the Donkeyfield Orchard. This will take place on Monday 23 Janaury at 7 Rosefield Avenue, 7:30 – 9:00pm. Please let Jane know if you are planning to come.
