Wassailing 2019 @ Highfield Park Visitor Centre

A wassail is an old English custom dating back from pre-Norman time. The Wassail gives fruit growers the opportunity to drink to the good health of their fruit trees and scare away any evil spirits.

All Highfield residents are invited, young, old and in between!

Come join us, and if you fancy, decorate yourself with some ivy, leaves and feathers and bring along something to make a noise like a musical instrument or a pot and spoon to scare away the bad spirits and awaken the trees from their slumber
