Wassail at Old Lands

Saturday 8th February 4pm – 7pm


Please come and join our wassail at Old Lands. We will bless the apple trees and soak the roots with cider, in the hope that it will bring a good harvest. The event is free but a small donation towards the musicians would be hugely appreciated. Availability is limited so booking is essential through eventbrite, please see the link below or contact


Spring Inc Botaneg

Saturday 2nd May 11am – 4pm 


After gathering flowers and berries from the beautiful gardens of Oldlands estate, you’ll learn to make botanical inks to use for painting, drawing and calligraphy. Tutor Cat Lewis is an established  artist/maker from Cardiff. She is a botanical colour specialist; her Walnut ink-making has been featured on BBC Countryfile. 

Over 16s. No experience needed. It’s good to bring your own gloves and an art kit, papers, fabrics, ingredients maybe, inspiration possibly… oh and wear old clothes. 

Teas, coffee and cakes provided but please bring your lunch – we often do a shared pot-luck meal.  Price for the day is £65.00.
