Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

The ancient tradition of wassailing – blessing apple trees in midwinter – is re-appropriated for an urban setting in this procession. Now in its tenth year, it’s going to be bigger and better than before. Led by storyteller Rachel Rose Reid and other local talents, from Willesden Green tube station to Willesden Library. Those taking part will learn and chant an adaptation of an ancient wassail song, hear local choir singers and listen to spoken word and stories along the route.
