Costermongers Harvest Festival

Each year there are three Harvest Festivals organised by London's Pearly Kings and Queens. This first follows a parade from Guildhall Yard in the City and takes place in St Mary-le-Bow Church, Cheapside.

Amidst dancing and marching bands, donkey-and-carts collect harvest produce and the parade to St Mary-le-Bow is joined by some 20 mayors from around the capital. After the service the produce is donated to the Whitechapel Mission for the Homeless.

The distinctive, pearl button-swathed "Pearlies" date back 150 years. There are still around 40 active families, fundraising for a variety of charities.
