  • Visitor Information

Continuing a tradition thought to have originated in France, but found in many English villages, the annual Egg Rolling competition takes place on Fleet Street in the early morning of Easter Sunday. A regular fixture for St Bride's for the past 30 years or so, the competition - an old custom which symbolises new life - sees 60 people roll their eggs (hard boiled are best) down Fleet Street towards Ludgate Circus. There are some rules - overarm throws and peeling of the egg shell are not permitted - but largely this is an eccentric event where the church comes together to celebrate Easter and see who will win the hotly contested prize - a chocolate egg.

 

About Fleet Street

Once the thriving hub of Britain's newspaper publishing industry, Fleet Street now plays host to some very historic pubs, beautiful old churches and large financial buildings, but sadly no journalistic pursuits. News International was the first to break from traditional, suddenly moving production of the Sun and the Times to Wapping in 1985. More about Fleet Street
