Come to the the third Orchard Wassail – Sunday 4th January 2015 – at the Levenshulme community orchard at the Quadrants, off Crayfield Road, behind the old Levenshulme Station on Stockport Road under which the Fallowfield Loop passes. (The location of the Levenshulme orchard is shown on the map here.)
Gather around 4 p.m., i.e. dusk fall, and the first songs will be sung half an hour later, and hopefully there will be enough of us to conjure up a Wassail Queen to lead us through the orchard of not only apple, but pear, plum, damson and greengage trees, and wish them health – wassail – through this season of winter, and into the following year.
There will be singing – bring a drink to warm you up and whet your whistle, maybe some food to share. It doesn’t last long – maybe an hour altogether, but enough for magic to happen and cheer the cockles of the heart as we enter a new year!
