Blackthorn wassail

Blackthorn Wassail SOLD OUT



As Darkness falls in the bitter chill of winter, join Blackthorn Morris Dancers for their Annual Wassail, an evening of Dance, Music and Ceremonies.

The Blood of the Orchard will be spilled, the Wassail King and Queen crowned and the Herefordshire Lantern set ablaze.

Mari’s, Osses and Beasts will be wandering around the audience and there will be a traditional Pwnco ceremony and torchlight procession to the old orchard as well as a bonfire.

The Wassail will be hosted by Newton Court Cider, at their brand new, licensed premises The Chapel Of Apple, where they will be serving homecooked hot food, hot drinks and beverages from their working cidery (vegetarian/vegan options available).

The evening will conclude with a performance by the majestically macabre Blackthorn Band and Singers and music will be provided by special guests, The Bushell Bag Carollers.
