Winter Celebrations,  Sunday 19 January 2020, 4-7pm

Join us for an evening of seasonal traditions to drive out the cold winter, including an Apple Wassail in Robert Burns’ orchard, stories, music and dancing.  Apples were the first crop Robert Burns sold at Ellisland and as part of our wassail we will be ‘blessing’ the apple trees in his orchard with cider to get a good crop in the coming year.

The ticket price includes soup, crusty bread and other treats, with spiced apple juice provided by Steilhead Cider, who have used Ellisland apples for some of their products.  Tickets are £10 for adults, £5 for children and are available from Ellisland, manager@ellislandfarm.co.uk, the Midsteeple Box Office, www.dgboxoffice.co.uk and on ticketsource.
