OCTOBER PLENTY WITH THE LIONS PART
Sunday 23 October 
12 noon on Bankside 
Map: http://quicklink.se1direct.co.uk/?id=888
An Autumn Harvest Celebration beginning on  Bankside by
Shakespeare’s Globe, mixing ancient seasonal customs
and theatre with contemporary festivity, joining with
Borough Market. A huge Corn Queene effigy heavy with
‘plenty’ - wheat, barley and other  grains, and apples,
root vegetables and foliage will appear in a procession
around the front of the Globe, Bankside, with the
Company of  actors, music, the time- honoured hobby
horse, strung with cakes and loaves and the berry man -
an autumn incarnation of the original green man -
decked with wild fruits and foliage leads the company.
The crowd processes through the streets to Borough
Market. There in the Green Market, savour the delights
on offer: soul cakes, conker fights, cider from the New
Forest, apple bobbing, a great beer selection and the
wonderful market stalls and more dancing. The Company
performs Fastnachtsspiele or Nonsensenightplays.
Vibrant old tales of pastoral life, these ebullient
16th-century verse plays by Hans Sachs are rarely
performed. Witness them today in new translation for
the occasion, spiced with present day festive spirit
and song. Apples cascade out into the crowd as the Corn
Queene is opened up at the end of the play and this is
followed by the celebrated Execution of John
Barleycorn. A glade of young English apple trees
creates a space for children to gather. There they can
re-clothe the trees with green wishes (paper apples)
and listen to stories about apples, markets and harvest
time. There is tasting of old apple types from London
by Brogdale Horticultural Trust and a colourful display
created by Roots and Shoots, the Lambeth community
gardens project who created the Corn Queene.
