Things to do today in London: Sunday February 23 2020
If you’re all about supporting independent business, you need to get out and about this Sunday. Pick up some interesting reading material on a bookshop crawl, or trawl through the goodies at an indie music market for some new tunes to spin. Jeff Bezos hates to see it!
1. London Bookshop Crawl
Back for its fifth year, the London Bookshop Crawl takes the basic premise of a pub crawl and swaps the booze for books. Grab a map and head out on your own, or join a guided group, with special talks and tours to check out en route.

2. Willesden Green Wassail
Join north London locals for the tenth anniversary of the Willesden Wassail, a charming modern version of the ancient tradition of blessing apple trees where you’ll join a procession down the high street, chanting the wassail song as you go.
