Wassail!

A moveable feast of Ancient and Victorian songs for midwinter merriment

Wes-hael! Be hale and hearty in good company, and hail the returning light with a community gathering of song, merriment, and feasting for all. This program is a traveling version of Lynn's legendary annual holiday party, now in its 18th year. The Mallard Wassail features a boisterous carol sing, a traditional mummers' play, the ceremonial entrance of the world's only vegetarian boar's head, a groaning board of Victorian and Renaissance holiday fare, and a giant silver wassail bowl of flaming wine.

We will bring the carol sing to you with printed Mallard Wassail Books like the PDF below, and arrange a nonalcoholic wassail bowl and a sufficiently groaning board as the venue permits (sadly, most venues prohibit lighting wine on fire indoors). There might even be a mummers' play--you never know with the Paper Bag Mummers. Join in the holiday fellowship of song and embrace the true meaning of Wassail!
