Walworth’s is holding a “winter wassail” this Sunday from 2pm to celebrate local gardening groups and the year ahead.

Wassailing is an ancient custom to help bring orchards back to life, even in the deep midwinter, and make good health wishes for the year ahead.

The open event will start with some kids crafting at the Pullen’s Centre from 2pm to make costumes, before joining a procession with pots and pans – to make some noise – from the centre at 3pm which will tour community gardens.

The walk will finishing at Draper Hall for refreshments and music from 5pm, with home baked contributions welcome.

The West Walworth Winter Wassail is held on Sunday, January 12, from 2pm at Pullen’s Centre, and 5pm from Draper Hall. All invited.
