As the last Sunday of September rolls round, it’s time for the Guildhall to be invaded by the cockney masses for a shindig Dick van Dyke would give his left arm and dodgy accent to muscle in on. The annual event features traditional English entertainment including maypole dancing, morris dancers and a marching band: be prepared to declare your London pride by shouting along to ‘Maybe It’s Because I’m a Londoner’ – before embarking on a parade around the City of London to St Mary-le-Bow Church for the 3pm service. The event is free but harvest festival offerings will be donated to the Whitechapel Mission.  Carly-Ann Clements
