The 28th Annual Stoke Gabriel Wassail. A magical evening of ‘Cider, Culture & Cheer’ organised by the ‘Friends of Stoke Gabriel School’ (FOSS), the Annual Wassail has become a very popular event Apple Wassailing is an ancient tradition performed in many villages on 'Old Twelfth Night' to bless the cider apples and orchards and encourage a good crop in the coming year. The lantern procession led by the Wassail King and Queen and the apple blessing Wassail Ceremony will take place around 6pm within the village community orchard with wassail singing led by Rosa Rebecka. There will be other events in the village centre from 4pm into the evening, (details to follow).
