Harvest Festival Services across our Parishes

Harvest Festival used to be celebrated at the beginning of the harvest season on 1 August and was called Lammas, meaning 'loaf mass'.  Farmers made loaves of bread from the new wheat crop and gave them to the local church.  They were then used as the Communion bread during a special mass thanking God for the harvest.  The custom ended when Henry V111 broke away from the Catholic Church and nowadays we have harvest festivals at the end of the season.

At the start of the harvest, communities would appoint a strong and respected man of the village as their 'Lord of the Harvest'.  He would be responsible for negotiating the harvest wages and organising the fieldworkers.  The end of the harvest was celebrated with a big meal called a harvest Supper, eaten on Michaelmas Day ( September 29 ).  The 'Lord of the Harvest' sat at the head of the table. A goose stuffed with apples was eaten along with a variety of vegetables.  Goose fairs were and still are held in English towns at this time of year.  Nottingham Goose Fair being one of the biggest.

God Bless
