Willesden Green wassail

Lonely Planet | Seize the Days

"At this time of year, folks in rural England walk through orchards to celebrate their apple trees in the depths of midwinter. On Sunday something similar will be happening in Willesden Green, as locals and performance artists gather to reclaim an ancient ritual in an unusually urban setting. The crowds who join this Wassail will be celebrating the local independent shops and community spirit. Along the walk the crowd will be entertained by performances on streetcorners from Glastonbury hip hop sensation Dizraeli, to traditional storyteller Debs Newbold, lovingly gathered and led by performance artist and founder Rachel Rose Reid. Gather at 2.15pm at Willesden Green Tube station for 2.30pm, 23rd January"
