Fire, Fable & Feast
Saturday 10th August 2019
5pm - 10pm

You’re invited to get wacky with us for our annual winter fest – a night of fire, fable, feasting and fun. A totally unique orchard experience.

Scour the cupboard for some pots and pans, dress up in weird and wonderful medieval or pagan attire and dance and sing the night away. Let’s make a heck of a racket!


Fire, Fable & Feast

Our event is based on wassail, an ancient pagan practice of casting away bad energy and scaring off evil spirits to ensure a good apple harvest for the next season.

We bang pots and pans, sing and dance around the bonfire amongst the apple trees. Wear your gumboots! There will be pagan entertainment, live music, hearty food, drinks, games and festivities in the Apple Shed. Plus prizes for the best dressed!

Mulled cider is offered on arrival, and warming hearty food (and smores!) to satisfy hungry bellies. There will be a three-course meal option for those wanting to have a sit-down dinner before the festivities.

This is a night to let your hair down and just have some fun!

Wassail!! Wassail! Apple trees - bring on your bounty!

“Here’s to the tree, old apple tree, that blooms well, bears well.
Hats full, caps full, three bushel bags full, an’ all under one tree.
Hurrah! Hurrah!”
