Speaking out for The Queensbury at the Willesden Green Wassail

Today we attended the 5th annual Willesden Green Wassail.

Wassailing is an ancient tradition that involves singing and drinking the health of trees in the hopes that they might better thrive. Local poet and story teller Rachel Rose Reid has adapted the custom to make it relevant to our urban setting in Willesden Green so we sang to local independent traders with the help of MCs and other spoken word artists. With the fate of The Queensbury still undecided, today was a good opportunity to show how much we value our high street.

Thanks to Wembley Matters for the video
