Apple Day at Southwark Cathedral

Borough Market, The Lions part theatre company and Southwark Cathedral are uniting this year to celebrate Apple Day.

The Cathedral will be marking Apple Day in the Choral Eucharist at 11am. Together with Borough Market stallholders the Flower Guild at the Cathedral will deck the Cathedral with special displays using apples and market produce.

The Eucharist is open to everyone and will be followed by apple games (including apple-bobbing) in the Churchyard with the Ministry of Fun. The Refectory will be celebrating Apple Day with an apple-y menu.

The Lions part will perform their annual October Plenty harvest celebration, mixing ancient seasonal customs and theatre with contemporary festivity. Their programme begins with a procession from the Globe to Borough Market, followed by games and activities from 12.30pm, and the performance in the Market will begin at 1.30pm.

Traders will be at Borough Market from 11am and will remain open until 5pm. Apples, cider and apple juice, apple cakes and pies and lots more autumnal treats will be available.

Music and festivities in celebration of apples and autumn will be taking place throughout the day.
