Winter Wassailing Adventure !


The Woodland trust 2018

The Brief

We were first asked by our client at Skipton Castle Woods for a Christmas event in 2018. They were keen to keep the event within the aims of The Woodland Trust with a focus on looking after and appreciating the forest and to remain inclusive for all


What We Did

We decided to focus the adventure on the tradition of wassailing. Involving song, trees and oftentimes – cider – wassailing is about celebrating the trees in their dormant state and encouraging them to endure the Winter ready to bud again in the Spring. There are several wassailing carols which, along with snowy favourites – Jingle Bells and the Holly and The Ivy formed the basis of our narrative. We successfully delivered the event in Skipton Castle Woods in December 2018 – providing a festive seasonal experience which connected audiences with nature at this time of year.


The Result

The success of the 2018 delivery led on to subsequent events at Skipton Castle Woods in 2019 and at The Smithills Estate, Bolton in 2019 and 2021.

“I have to say we have had some fantastic feedback so far and I was over the moon when we sold out of the tickets by Thursday morning. We had to turn quite a few people away for Halloween itself – but a good problem to have!”
