Wassail!

    • Location:
    • Bath City Farm, Kelston View, Whiteway, Bath, BA2 1NW

    • Date:

    • Price:
    • Free!

Apple tree, apple tree,
Bear good fruit,
Or down with your top
And up with your root!

 

According to ancient custom, Wassailing fruit trees at this time of year is the only certain way to guarantee good crops in the autumn. It’s as old as the hills and as daft as a brush. Wrap up warm, bring a pot and a wooden spoon, and join us as we take up the rituals of drumming, shouting and hurling slices of toast into the branches. You know it makes sense.

 

The Wassail will be hosted by Kilter’s Olly in the guise of calendar month, January, standing astride the past and future with a snotty cold, a bicycle hooter and a ludicrous brummie accent. Needless to say, Bath City Farm is beautiful, the hot chocolate in the cafe is delicious and, with you there, the company will be unparalleled!

 

This event is part of our 4-year Bathscape commission to help local people creatively connect with their beautiful world-heritage landscape throughout the year. Bathscape Landscape Partnership is a National Lottery Heritage Fund supported project.

 

All welcome. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

 

This event would normally cost £10+ but thanks to players of The National Lottery we are able to offer it for free!

 

Tickets

Booking essential. Book your free ticket and be entered into a prize draw to win a FREE brewery tour for two at Bath Ales Hare Brewery! Tour voucher valid for one year. 18+ only.
