The annual Wassail ceremony to ‘wake the trees’ will take place on Saturday.

People can meet at the park’s visitors centre at noon. There will then be a procession into the woods to the orchard where children can hang toast on the trees.

The crowds will also use pots and pans along with other tools and musical instruments to make a noise to wake the trees.

Visitors taking part are asked to bring along pans to bash.
