Marching bands and the Pearly Kings and Queens in their spangly 'Smother Suits' covered in hundreds of pearl buttons are the main draw at this annual event. The festival starts at 1pm at Guildhall Yard with traditional entertainment before a parade to St Mary-le-Bow church for a harvest festival service at 3pm. All harvest festival offerings are donated to the Whitechapel Mission.
