I have just joined an Abundance UK group and have been notified of this event and thought it sounded really interesting! Please find details below:
Wassailing is a pagan tradition to celebrate apple trees and hope for a good harvest, and the Willesden Winter Wassail will be a mixture of new and old traditions, with all sorts of entertainment on offer.
Help us to bless the local trees, and then join us walking, singing and listening to extraordinary entertainment as we stop every so often along our route, to hear our neighbours and friends read poetry, tell stories and sing songs on the subject of trees and of the hope of a good harvest in 2010 from the depths of January! It will be followed by food, drink and conversation.
Turn up on the day, or contact Rachel Rose Reid rachelrosereid@… before if you want to take part (read a poem, sing a song, or anything else you don’t mind doing in public!) or be more involved in some way.
“Here’s to thee, old apple tree, Whence thou may’st bud And whence thou may’st blow! And whence thou may’st bear apples enow! Hats full! Caps Full! Bushel, bushel, sacks full! And my pockets full too! Hooray!”
