Wassail 2024

Saturday January 13th 2024

RHSO's Annual Wassail will take place on Saturday 13th January, 6:00 to 7:30pm.

The wassail fire (in a fire pit!) and singing (click for lyrics) will take place just outside the orchard on the land just to the South next to the Rivers Hospital access road (see map below). The tree blessing will take place just inside the orchard.

Refreshments (cakes, hot drinks, mulled cider, and mulled apple juice) will be available at the event. Live music and traditional Wassail singing will take place.


Please do not park cars along the access road. For this event, limited car parking is available in Rivers Hospital staff carpark on the opposite side of the road. If walking, we advise that you come from High Wych Road, because the route from The Crest is likely to be dark and muddy! See a local map for more information.

A map with the location of the orchard can be found here.
