1 Response to The Barlaston Wassail

From Tim Cockin on 6th September 2013
Please insert this:- This is Britain's unique wassail. The 2013 event will be taking place round the village of Barlaston, and not over the Downs Banks. Still starting at 9.30pm on the village green. The organiser, Tim Cockin.
