England and Catalonia share St George as their patron saint so it was fitting that Borough Market's St George's Day event on Sunday had a Catalan twist.
Stars of the show were the Castellers de Vilafranca who wowed the crowds with their amazing human towers in the Green Market on Sunday lunchtime.
The Castellers had begun their three-day London tour on Friday in Potters Fields Park and also performed on Bankside on Sunday morning.
As well as food and drink from Catalonia and around the world, the special market event also encompassed the Catalan tradition of exchanging books and roses to celebrate St George's Day. The Riverside Bookshop had a stall selling titles by Catalan authors.
Further St George's Day celebrations will be held on Monday at the Dragon Cafe in the Crypt of St George the Martyr and on Tuesday at Southwark Cathedral where a secondhand book sale and a celebration of Shakespeare's Birthday in words and music are planned.
