Wassailing

A Wassail is an old English custom dating back to pre-Norman times. 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, so join us on

Saturday 4th January at 4.30pm

Highfield Park Visitor Centre

If you fancy it, decorate yourself with some ivy, leaves and feathers and bring 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 slumbers.

Mulled cider, apple juice and nibbles will be served.
