The 'Frozen in Time' parade was the latest event in the Blackfriars Stories series commissioned by Southwark Council and local property developers.

Pupils from St George's Cathedral Primary School, Friars Primary School and Charlotte Sharman School took part in Friday's evening.

The parade began in Lancaster Street and made its way to the Peabody Estate on Blackfriars Road before heading to Flat Iron Square, Red Cross Garden and Mint Street Park.
