Borough Market is putting community at the heart of its Easter celebrations this year, centring the festivities around an Easter Tree of Hope, created with help from local schools, charities and friends of the Market. Visitors can also enjoy a special Easter Egg Trail and Quiz. The four-metre-high Easter Tree of Hope will be decorated with more than 200 hand-painted wooden eggs strung on vegetable dyed ribbons and filled with blossom, surrounded by a cornucopia of fruit and vegetables from Market traders to create a sense of Spring abundance and hope for the future. Visitors to the market over Easter can also take part in a special family Easter egg trail. Participants will need to find the answers to the Borough Market Easter Quiz displayed on 8 giant eggs decorated by artist and illustrator Rosie Brooks, hidden amongst the numerous stalls. There will be 50 delicious chocolatey prizes up for grabs each day, from trader So Chocoliciousfor those taking part in the trail. As always, high quality seasonal produce will be on offer including spring lamb, asparagus, new potatoes, hot cross buns and more treats to make your Easter table. A selection of Easter recipes to cook at home can also be found on the Borough Market website. Over the Easter weekend Borough Market will be open on Good Friday from 10am-5pm and will be operating extended hours on Saturday 16th from 8am-5pm. The Market will be closed on Easter Sunday and Easter Monday to allow traders to enjoy some time off with their families and friends. Borough Market’s Easter celebrations will take place from Wednesday 13th April until 19th April. For more information on Easter at Borough Market, visit: https://boroughmarket.org.uk/events

Nothing says Christmas (and tier four) like a long list of good films to cuddle up to. We’ve put together a list of some family favourites that have one thing in common – they all feature London Bridge! An ultimate rom-com – Bridget Jones Diary. Any fan of the film will know that Bridget’s quirky flat is fictionally above the Globe Tavern, a traditional corner pub on Bedale Street in Borough Market. Everyones favourite bear is out and about in London in Paddington 2. And Hugh Grant’s villainous Phoenix Buchanan pops up at Tower Bridge on the next stage of his treasure hunt in this much loved family favourite. Known for performing his own stunts, we watch Tom Cruise sprint over Blackfriars with the perfect view of Tower Bridge behind him in Mission Impossible. The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus tells the story of Dr Parnassus and his extraordinary ‘Imaginarium’, a travelling show where members of the audience get an irresistible opportunity to choose between light and joy or darkness and gloom. Find Borough Market appear when a drunk man discovers the rickety set-up is more mysterious than it appears… The remake of the classic featuring Emily Blunt as Mary Poppins, shows off the capital in all its glory. In the opening scene we see Lin Manuel Miranda cycle in with a misty Tower Bridge in the background. In Harry Potter and the Half Bloody Prince we see the muggles working away in City Hall. The building’s appearance constitutes an anachronism. It was only built in 2002.
Sandwiched between two of the best artisan markets in the country and home to an array of talented independent restauranteurs and sensational occasion destinations alike; London Bridge has long been an established haven for food-lovers. 2017 has been an especially exciting year for the area’s culinary scene: seeing the opening of Chef Leandro Carreira’s debut solo venture Londrino, Brighton export The Coal Shed and a Tower Bridge branch of London’s beloved brasserie, The Ivy.
