Wassail! at Bath City Farm

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 January, standing astride the past and future with a snotty cold, a bicycle hooter and a ludicrous brummie accent.

Join us for:
Free Hot Chocolate (while stocks last)
Making as much noise as we can!
A traditional apple wassail
Actors with silly hats and ridiculous accents!
Family friendly fun and games
Toasting toast on the toasty campfire!
Nonsense seasonal poetry from St Andrews Yr 4

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