October PlentyOctober Plenty is a glorious autumn harvest celebration, mixing ancient seasonal customs and theatre with contemporary festivity, and this year it returns for its 20th celebration. Linking two of London's most olde worlde features, this event begins on Bankside, in the shadow of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, and finishes among the stalls of Southwark's wonderful Borough Market where apple games and dancing are just some of the harvest celebrations taking place. Attractions include a Corn Queene effigy, the Berry Man, performances of the colourful tale of 'Reynard the Fox', the Story Orchard - where children can listen to traditional tales about apples and harvests - conker fights, apple bobbing and much more. A wonderful revival of ancient customs and a great way for Londoners to remember the pleasures of this season, all for free. The Apple Day Celebrations also take place at Borough Market this weekend.

About Borough Market

This gourmand's delight is London's oldest food market and boasts a mouth-watering range of fresh food stalls under its Dickensian wrought-iron roof. More about Borough Market
