Stir Up Sunday 2018


Stir Up Sunday at The Courtyard Tearoom in Saffron Walden is on Sunday 25th November this year, 10.30am to 2.00pm.  Everyone is invited to add ingredients to the pudding mix, give a stir and make a wish. This was our fifth Stir Up Sunday event and we always receive a fantastic turnout and a big thank you to everyone who takes part.

Stir-up Sunday is the traditional day for everyone in the family to take a turn at stirring the Christmas pudding, whilst making a wish. The pudding mixture was always stirred from East to West in honour of the three Wise Men who visited the baby Jesus. Whilst stirring the pudding mixture, each family member would make a secret wish. Traditionally, a silver sixpence was stirred into the mix, to bring the finder wealth and good luck in the year to come.

We look forward to seeing everyone back again this year.
