Waking up the orchard at Moseley Old Hall

Ready to wake up the trees in 2018

Prepare to make some noise! Join us this February to wassail around the orchard, waking up the trees from their winter slumber, banishing evil spirits and ensuring a good harvest. You can also have a go at toasting marshmallows over the fire and complete one of your 50 Things to do Before 11 3/4.

Wassailing is the ancient custom of visiting orchards in cider-producting regions, reciting incantations and singing to the trees to promote a good harvest for the year. Join us in waking up our trees for 2018 - it works every year!

Tick something off your 50 Things to do Before 11 & 3/4 and have a go at toasting marshmallows on our woodland campfire for £1 a bag. It's good fun for adults too!
