Yer Tiz Lovers! Midnight Apothecary 2022 kicks off on Saturday 15 January with an ancient appley affair. Gather round the fire and get the heart pumping for Wassailing, the traditional old Twelfth Night celebration. It's a chance to warm your cockles, aided by some cider-based concoctions, beers & wines. Soft drinks always on hand for the serene and sanctimonious.
This ancient ceremony blesses the fruit trees in anticipation of the bountiful new season. For our 10th year celebrating Wassail, we will process to the apple tree in the lower garden with Wassail and sing some Wassail carols led by the Butler of the Ceremony and starring the Wassail Queen, alongside some amazing folk musicians to bring some real Wassail merriment to the scene! Bring lanterns and torches to read the songsheet, along with your heartiest bellow to join in the hailing! The garden will be decked with giant flares and house one of the bars serving our Hot Deluxe Wassail Toddies/beers/wines, with the other bar at the entrance to the Tunnel Shaft at the top of the Grand Staircase where our musicians will continue the celebration in Brunel's vast Underground Chamber below. We will have two roaring communal firepits (Roof Garden & Ground Floor Terrace) and you can order marshmallows/s'mores to toast on these. You are also welcome to order whatever food you like to be delivered to you using Deliveroo, Just Eat or however you wish.
Wassail gets its name from the Old English term "waes hael" meaning "be well". The Saxon response is "drink hael" meaning "drink and be healthy". What more could you want from a crisp winter's evening than to gather round the fire when nights are at their shortest? Join us for the magic!
