Portobello Community Orchard Wassail, Edinburgh, 26 January 2019Add to Lightbox Download
People of all ages gathered this afternoon in Portobello's Community Orchard at Donkeyfield by Brunstane to sing some wassailing songs. The songs, a mixture of traditional and more modern, were originally sung in orchards at this time of year to mark the start of the new year and encourage a good growing season. Members of Portobello's Community Choir, led by Jane Lewis, sang along with other locals and enjoyed drinks made from apples gathered in the orchard in what is now an annual tradition at the orchard.
