Your Wassail Needs You!


Stroud Wassail 2020 is recruiting – we need an assortment of mummers, musicians, elves, basically anyone who is willing to roll their sleeves up, get stuck in, have a laugh and benefit our wonderful town and its wonderful people. We need the following:

  • Actors and singers for the Stroud Wassail Mummers Play – no experience necessary, just a willingness to commit for a few weeks over the winter, laugh a lot and make a total idiot of yourself in public

  • Beast carriers – the Wassail has a collection of strange mystical creatures including giant sheep, minotaurs, monkeys, horses and other critters that defy description. We need people to manage these during the daytime procession and/or at the evening Revels
  • Marshals for the Procession on Saturday 11th – you get to wear a cool high vis vest and order morris dancers around (what’s not to like?!)
  • Bucket rattlers – Stroud Wassail is funded by the generous Stroudie public, so we need people to help collect funds on the day and count up the pennies afterwards
  • Elves to sell raffle tickets, distribute cake and keep order at the evening Revels – elf kit is available
  • People who are just prepared to muck in and help out as necessary on Wassail day and the weeks leading up to it

The Wassail has grown incredibly over the years, and we really need help to keep it going. If you want to get involved, contact us
