Wilsons' Orchard, 5:00pm to 7:30pm
This be a New Year event, whereupon members of Northampton's South Court Environmental (SCE) and families and other members of the public come together in Wilson's Orchard to wake up the trees.
This is done by singing, dancing, making a noise, and eating and drinking, and generally making merry.
(There is never any sign of any trees being woken by this procedure, in fact at the present time, considering the mild weather, perhaps not many of them have gone to sleep. Certainly there is no proof that such antics result in a better harvest. However, it is a traditional fun scene for people rather than trees, and there is no fee to enter the enchanted orchard). Wellington boots, torch, and suitable outdoor clothing must be considered essential.
