We still have a couple of stalls left so if you're arty, crafty, a chef or a brewer then sign up to sell your wares and share some of the Christmas magic. If you would be interested in having a stall, please e-mail us at email@example.com.

Wheaty Wassail - Thursday 19th December 8.30pm
Come early if you want a seat as our favourite Morris side return to the Wheatsheaf for the annual Wassail. What's a Wassail we hear you cry? It's a medieval Christmastide English drinking ritual intended to ensure a good harvest the following year. Sounds like a good excuse for a drink up to us! The Ewell St. Mary's Morris Men will be singing Christmas Carols, playing festive tunes, performing a few traditional dances and there'll be plenty of Morris merriment at the friendliest little pub in the village. Be warned that song sheets and shakers will be handed out and you will be expected to join in! Come and join us from 8.30pm for a great night.
Don't forget that the Morris lads will return to the Wheaty on Boxing Day following their tour of Ewell village. They're collecting in aid of the Mayor's charities so we wish them all the best with their fundraising.
OUR CHARITY Of the year
Every year the Wheatsheaf adopts one worthy cause and this year we're supporting The Lullaby Trust, which is a relatively small charity that raises awareness of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), provides expert advice on safer sleep for babies and offers emotional support for bereaved families. Wheaty regulars, Joe and Christine Arnold, tragically lost their 8 week old daughter Bonnie when she was a victim of cot death (now known as SIDS). Soon after Bonnie passed away, Joe and Christine were put in touch with The Lullaby Trust who were a great support to the family and their way of recovery from such a heartbreaking experience was to focus on fundraising for the fantastic work the charity carries out on a day-to-day basis. Since 1985, the Arnold family have been wonderful supporters over the Lullaby Trust by hosting a number of events including a biennial fundraiser at Epsom Downs named 'Bonnie's Ball'. Christine and Joe's son, Jack, will be running the London Marathon this year.
Christine told the Wheatsheaf Weekly "Bonnie's 'Family' has grown over the past 33 years in many diverse and unexpected ways. Thank you to the Wheaty patrons for being and becoming part of this 'Family' and adopting The Lullaby Trust as your 2019 charity".
