An old Somerset tradition of wassailing – held each year on January 17th (the old ‘twelfth night’) to ensure a fine crop of cider apples during the summer ahead – will be performed at a charity event near Highbridge on Thursday night.

Burnham-On-Sea Rotary Club and Rich’s Cider are organising an evening of wassailing – in which good health is wished on crops for the coming year – including entertainment from The Mangled Wurzels (pictured), in aid of the Somerset and Dorset Air Ambulance.

The event will be held at Rich’s Cider in Watchfield and tickets cost £15 in advance and include a plate of stew and a mug of mulled cider.

Doors open at 7.30pm and tickets are available by calling 01278 783651. Read more about apple wassailing here.
