WASSAILING IN WILLESDEN GREEN!
Come and be a part of our winter-warming song and story walk through Willesden Green, with professional musicians, singers and storytellers(suitable for all ages)!
WHEN & WHERE?
Sunday 17th January, 14.30-16.00.
Meet at Willesden Green Tube* for a prompt 14.30 start.
Then walk with us down the High Street and be entertained by professional performers at designated stops along the route until we plant a brand new crab apple tree at Willesden Green Library, chant an ancient wassail chant, and recover in the warmth of a cosy location nearby.
Wassailing (from 'Wassail' - a toast to 'Good Health!') is an ancient English tradition of blessing fruit trees in Midwinter, with the hope that next Summer's harvest will be a good one. As Willesden Green is bursting with more independent shops than orchards, we are using the Wassail to celebrate our local shopkeepers, and hope that we all have a good 'harvest' after clambering out of the cold heart of the credit crunch
