It was a suitably chilly day for Southwark Council's first Frost Fair, recalling the great fairs held in the 16th century when the Thames froze over.
Musical entertainment was provided by the Morley College
Can't Sing Choir, and stilt walkers mingled with the crowd. An ice angel had landed in front of the Globe gates. The Globe Exhibition was open free of charge and stalls included gourmet foods, jewellery, silk scarves and prints, calendars and postcards by local photographer Steve Hollingshead, based on his recent exhibition at Bankside Restaurant.
Riverside stalls provided warming drinks and hot chestnuts.
