October Plenty Harvest Festival,The Lions Part
I went to see the October Plenty Festival at the weekend. The Lions Part a group of performers were running this Harvest Festival event an Bankside, Shakespeare's Globe and Borough Market.
There was a great Berry or Green Man, Corne Queene and other costumed performers including a Hobby Horse and a wagon of harvest plenty.In the Globe they put on a play, The Tempests Masque which was good fun and then there was a procession which I followed to Borough Market.
The market were celebrating Apple Day and it was interesting to see all the stalls, the Lions Part also performed another play and lead games and activities.Good to see some traditions being kept alive in London.
I was taking photographs for my exhibition on traditions and seasons, which will be up in the Hornbeam in a few weeks time.
