Who’s Here to Wassail?!- 2014


After restoring this annual tradition at Barley Wood four years ago, 2013 saw a bumper crop of apples spring from our two orchards. This has to be due to the incredible Wassail last year! On Saturday 11th January join us to bless the orchards, feed the robin and drive away the evil spirits that could harm our trees. With performances by the Barley Wood Mummers and Pip’s Human Jukebox. Award winning cocktails and Somerset cider.
