Pearly Kings and Queens Harvest FestivalEach year, on the last Sunday of September, London's Pearly Kings & Queens come together to welcome the new season in style - and boy what a style they have, with extravagant Smother Suits covered top to toe in sparkly buttons, badges and glitter. The free festival starts in the afternoon at 1pm at Guildhall Yard before a parade to St Mary-le-Bow church for a harvest festival service. No doubt the celebrations will then continue with some pints of ale and plates of jellied eel at an East End boozer - perhaps interspersed with a spot of Morris dancing. Offerings are donated to the Whitechapel Mission, a charity aiming to help those caught in poverty. A second Pearly Kings & Queens Harvest Festival is held in October in Covent Garden, at St Paul's Church.

 

About Guildhall Yard

The courtyard between the Guildhall Art Gallery and the church of St Lawrence Jewry, Guildhall Yard is the entrance way to both. It's also home to an occasion lunch food market, open air film screenings - and it's the site where The Worshipful Company of Carmen holds its cart-marking ceremony each July.
