A WASSAIL in aid of two charites takes place at Warwick’s Hill Close Gardens on January 14.
Wassailing is an ancient agricultural festival practiced in England for well over 1000 years. Merrymakers welcome in the New Year by drinking lots of ‘wassail’ (a spiced cider) and bless fruit trees for a good harvest ahead.
The event – on Saturday January 14, from 6pm to 9pm – will feature live music, morris dancing and a hog roast.
Money raised from tickets, priced £25, will be split between the High Sheriff of Warwickshire’s Crimebeat Charity and Hill Close Gardens.
