Apple Wassail – Spring Wild Ways Well

Tagged by

Join us in Howden Walled Garden for a (sort of) traditional Apple Wassail. Wassailing is an ancient tradition where communities would come together to celebrate the passing of winter and to ‘wake’ the apple trees in their orchards to ready them for the year ahead.

“Wassail the trees so they may bear, many an apple, and many a pear”

  • Date & Time: Saturday 3 February 11:00 am – 2:00 pm
  • Meeting place: St John’s Hospital Livingston – Howden Walled Garden

Why should I attend?

We’ll visit the trees in the garden, wake them up with some simple activities, make toast and hot spiced apple juice over a small fire, and chat about traditions, folklore, wildlife and the projects going on in this area.

Who is it for?

The event is free and you can drop in any time to take part.
