So, the wassail was celebrated with noise, song, lights, decorated trees and mulled apple juice. I am assuming we can sit back and expect a bumper crop of apples as a result. This was the first year our wassail has been accompanied by the erm… robust sound of a wheelbarrow orchestra, but I think they will become a feature. Who knows, given time, a wheelbarrow orchestra might become an essential part of the wassailing custom across the land. And then there was a chap dressed as a penguin. Again, not something I’ve come across in my researches of wassailing in times gone by, but he certainly added to the fun. If you have any more photos we would love to see them – send them to us by email or share them on our Facebook page. Photos on this post taken by Marina Velez.
