A special market day brings together London and Catalonia to celebrate our shared saint's day. Alongside the usual delicacies and produce, visitors can expect to find sardanes dancers, a Catalan choir, performances by theatre company Bots & Barrals and Catalan actress-singer Laia Martinez telling the story of St George and the Dragon. Londoners can get involved with the romantic Catalan custom of exchanging roses and books with loved ones. The Newham Bookshop and Institut Ramon Llull will be bringing a bookstall to the market and lovers can also buy roses decorated with a spike of wheat.
