St Giles Fayre and Phoenix Gardens Agricultural Show, 6 September

We like the Phoenix Gardens - it's a haven in the centre of town, in the shadow of Centre Point. And St Giles in the Fields is a beautiful and historic church. So we like the Phoenix Gardens Agricultural Show and St Giles Fayre, which comes at the start of September every year. 

This year we danced in the churchyard, where there was tea and cakes, and a barbecue, as well as animals from the City Farm, and produce such as honey. 

Other acts included a Punch and Judy show, as well as the Crystal Palace Brass Band. 

Some of us went on to a London Pride country dance event. Others went to Trafalgar Square where a demonstration welcomed a group who re-enacted the Jarrow March, calling for action to keep the NHS public.
