Costermongers' Harvest Festival 28 September

This year we didn't dance in the Guildhall square for the annual Costermongers' Harvest Festival. We didn't join the procession. Instead we were asked to dance outside St Mary-le-Bow, Cheapside till the procession arrived.

Morris is a traditional part of the Festival, but the main attraction is the Pearly Royalty on display, and there is also Maypole Dancing, Chelsea pensioners and all manner of other stuff, There's plenty of Morris in the square, and we enjoyed a chance to mingle with the other sides and people, before having a spot to ourselves outside the church.

There is a video of Peter Kanssen's jig on Facebook.
