There are many websites with good advice on this. Just put this question into the internet and look for a willow centre or my website for advice.

No, its better and safer NOT to bring secateurs. I'll trim any protruding willow pieces on the day.

The willow can be a bit grubby and damp so an apron may be helpful to protect your clothing.
