The annual tradition of wassailing returns to North Somerset this weekend, and there are plenty of activities for you to enjoy.
- Clevedon’s Curzon Cinema, in Old Church Road, will screen Darkest Hour.
The film tells the true story of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Gary Oldman) during the early days of World War II and his dilemma of whether to negotiate with Hitler, or fight on against incredible odds.
Screenings take place tonight (Friday) at 7.30pm, tomorrow (Saturday) at 1.30pm and 7.30pm and on Sunday at 1.30pm, 4.30pm and 7.30pm. Tickets, priced £7.40, are available from the box office on 01275 871000.
- Congsbury will hold a wassailing ceremony at the Millennium Green at 3pm on Saturday.
Meet at the Riverside Car Park and take a saucepan or drum to bang to drive away the evil spirits.
Refreshments will be available in the youth partnership hut afterwards.
- Sticking with wassailing, Pill’s Friends of Watchhouse Hill will hold an event on Saturday at 5pm to bless the apple trees.
The wassail will take place at the Community Orchard, in Watchhouse Hill.
People are invited to take a saucepan, lantern and torch for the ceremony.
- Clevedon ramblers will walk 5.5 miles at Purton, Sharpness and Brookend on Saturday and 10 miles in Bath on Sunday.
Meet at 9am at The Barn Car Park in Great Western Road each days and take a packed lunch.
- If you are after live sport this weekend, then head to The Everyone Active Stadium as Clevedon Town Football Club host Bridport.
Clevedon sit one place above their opponents in the league table, but the hosts have not won a game since December 23.
Tickets are available to buy on the gate.
