Beerfordbury Barrel Tappers and Wine Tipplers aka Stortfolk will be out and around the Bishop Stortford countryside wassailing the local pubs and collecting for charity from 15th December to Christmas.

This is our twelfth year and we usually collect over £1,000.

Does anybody else out there wassail

Tell us more about what you do and how. We don't really have anything like it around my neck of the woods. My chorus will be visiting the Community Kitchen and a local retirement home to sing in two weeks, but it isn't really wassailing. It isn't really a carol-sing, either. Just a performance. Who else wassails around here?

Over here where I live, we still have the tradition of caroling. This is where groups, church groups, or just groups of friends get together during Advent and go from house to house singing. Afterwards, there's usually some sort of a get together of the Carolers at some one's house for hot cider, hot chocolate, cookies and the like.

Out here in California I've participated in more than a few Wassails fueled by the real thing and accompanied by heaps of good music.

A stringent regemin of training is required all year long in order to be in shape for this event.

I had to really fight with the website you posted in order to get out of it. Do you know what's going on with that?

No problem! I did just check out the pages- no trouble getting in or out. I even tried explorer.. I write the pages primairly in netscape composer so they are biased a bit toward netscape.... I have noted that my netscape version which is a recent model... sometimes developes problems... try cleaning cache out and then shutting off netscape. Check to see if it is still running somehow and shut that off then begin again.

Good luck! Enjoy the pages. The Wassail Epicenter as well as almost all of our online work is done as a donation to the public of the world. If you are interested in supporting our work you may go to http://www.cbladey.com and click on the link to the right. The Wassail Epicenter will list any wassail event for free! Just send me an e.mail Clicketwassail here! Conrad

Here's a link to the Beerfordbury mob, a couple of miles up the road from Harlow, on the Herts Essex border (in England). Going wassailing with them can turn into a confusing kind of evening.

And I've been telling them to come visit the Mudcat for ages, so welcome here.

Wassail, wassail,
I'll tell you wassail -
That comes in bottles,
Brown and Pale
(from the Trunch tradition)

Yes you need the Giant
The Book Of Wassail

Four volumes bigger than a phone book. Hundreds of songs and lyrics, volume on literature, one on folklore and one on recipes and bibliography which is huge.

Perfect bound
A great reference- great for planning celebrations and a very good read -much fun

Get yours today or recommend that your local library gets one. Never has anything this big been published.
