Join the Pearly Kings and Queens Harvest Festival celebrations at Guildhall Yard, and experience London’s 140-year-old Pearly tradition.

Dressed in their best dark suits covered in hundreds of bright pearl buttons, the Pearly Kings and Queens of London are a charming and unforgettable sight. Getting together for the biggest event in the Pearly calendar, they celebrate the bounty of the autumn harvest with traditional entertainment in front of Guildhall from 1pm, before parading through the streets to St Mary Le Bow Church for a service of thanksgiving.

Expect Morris dancing, maypole dancing, marching bands, drummers and lots of colourful characters at this traditional event, which raises money for charity.
