Wrap up warm, bring your family and be prepared for some traditional New Year fun as we banish evil spirits and awaken the tree spirits. If you play a musical instrument, bring it along, or bring pots and pans to bash – we need to make as much noise as possible! We will walk around the orchard, blessing the trees and singing.

Garston Gallopers will be morris dancing, there will be mulled apple juice to toast the trees and quench the thirst after all the singing and pot bashing.

Find out who finds the bean in their fruit cake to be crowned King and Queen to conduct the ceremony.

Bring any lanterns from the Extravaganza.
