Unfortunately due to the terrible weather forecast for Sunday 21 January, we have taken the very sad decision to cancel our Wassail this year. The band and singers have cancelled, the orchard is very wet underfoot, and we have no covered space.

But we will be back next year!


For a taste of last year’s event, watch the video on YouTube – Dorset Wassail at Liberty Fields, take a look at the pictures below, or read Fanny Charles’ article in the January ‘Dorset’ Magazine.

We held our first Wassail in January 2017, when over 100 people came to help us rid the orchard of evil spirits and help this year’s apple crop. We were joined by the Ridgeway singers and some amazing hats.
