About the event
Old Twelfth Night Wassail Event on the night of the Gregorian Calender 17th January 2024 the same day at the Rennes Le Chateau Blue Apples phenomena when the blue glass shines on the walls, with the low winter sunlight (associated with Mary Magdalene mysteries in the South of France) join Priestess Kim to celebrate this old tradition of blessing the trees for the harvest during the winter.
We connect with the tree spirits, apple energy, Goddess and Goddess Aphrodite energies through ritual, song, chanting and ceremony.
It is the Old Twelfth Night Wassail, a traditional celebration that dates back centuries and is deeply rooted in pagan rituals and beliefs. This event is held on the twelfth night after Christmas, also known as the Feast of Epiphany, and marks the end of the Christmas season. Many people still celebrate this tradition in the UK, we are holding this unique celebration on the Gregorian Calendar on 17th January at Hilton with Wassail spiced apple drinks, song and chanting, ceremony and ritual.
Last year Kim visited Rennes Le Chateau in France where there is a unique blue apples phenomenon when the appearance of blue apples is reflected in the walls in the church. These are mysterious and are supposed to be part of the Mary Magdalene traditions and secrets from ancient times. It is said that on 17th January, the traditional Twelfth Night these apples or blue lights are reflected on the walls and possess magical properties and bring good luck to all that see them.
Come and join Kim Magdalene Priestess to celebrate with the Wassailing tradition of welcoming a year of good health, wellbeing and an abundance of apples for 2024.
Wassailing was part of Christmas and New Year celebrations; the Word Wassail comes from the Old Norse word for “good health” and the activities are about toasting one’s health.

Other drinks eg coffee/tea cakes etc available to purchase on the evening.
