Location: Borough Market
October 23, 2022 - October 23, 2022
Borough Market will be celebrating the Autumn harvest by welcoming back theatre company the Lions part and its popular October Plenty festival.
A glorious collective celebration of the seasons, weather and food, October Plenty mixes ancient seasonal customs and contemporary festivity with theatre performance dancing, special appearances and stories to mark the annual occasion.
The Lions part, which was formed in Southwark by a group of actors who met doing First Folio work with the Original Shakespeare Company, has for many years been performing as part of the annual harvest festivities. October Plenty is the troupe’s interpretation of some of the rich folklore and traditions of the autumn harvest. It includes appearances from the strikingly attired Corne Queen and Berry Man, and free performances for children in the Story Orchard.
The full Market will be in operation as usual during the day, so there will be plenty of opportunities to enjoy the seasonal produce central to the celebrations.
