Herefordshire Wassail at Burton Court

Herefordshire Wassail at Burton Court with Leominster Morris, January 6 from 7pm. In a digital age, there is something very real about the prospect of standing in a muddy field in the dead of winter with the only light provided by the flaming torches lighting the way to the orchard. The wassail was the first custom to be revived when the famous Leominster Morris was re-formed almost 40 years ago. This year they will be at Burton Court, Eardisland from 7pm on Friday, January 6, to pour cider on apple trees and hang toast in their branches as an offering to the spirits, while fires are lit as a sign of renewal and the coming of spring.
