We are all squirming around with excitement trying to type up plans and organise checklists for this coming orchard blessing Wassail. Not an easy thing to do when you have the story telling legend Martin Maudsley & captivating fiddler Fiona Barrow confirmed to tell Wassail tales and invite magical music between four courses of an apple inspired Full Feast Menu.
Food, tales, suspense, orchard blessing, music & laughter.
-With a bit o’ cider obviously.
“Martin Maudsley’s storytelling is masterful – engaging, witty and suitably scary.”
Anyone who was fortunate enough to catch Martin & Fiona’s rendition of Peter and the Wolf at the Tobacco Factory Theatre, or has had the chance to eat lovingly crafted food and be immersed in story at the enchanting St Werburghs City Farm Cafe Tasty Tales will no doubt share in our excitement too.
This pair will host our Tasty Wassail Tales evening then guide us by flaming torch to our orchard where we will once again, meet the Green Man, the Robin Guardian and bless the coming crop by shooting toast out of the Wassail tree with a shotgun.
Yes it sounds peculiar, that we know, but our next years crop of apples depends on it so show up and get used to it.
Tickets are £50 per guest and the menu is a cracker this year.
Oh yay, in other exiting news Marina O’Laughlin off of The Guardian food reviewing fame just put us down as her 2nd Favourite restaurant in the UK of all time! We’ve ne’er been so happy to come second. Congratulations to The Sportsman In Kent and all the fine Bristol places representing. Birch, Bell’s Diner and Bar Rooms.
Tickets are advance only. 01934 863 713 15th & 16th January 18:30 Prompt.
We can not wait to see you all again.
