London's Borough Market, the Lions Part Theatre Company and Southwark Cathedral are uniting this year to celebrate UK Apple Day on Sunday 26th October 2008. Apple Day will be marked by Southwark Cathedral in the Choral Eucharist at 11.00am on Sunday 26th October. Together with Borough Market stallholders the Flower Guild at the Cathedral will deck the Cathedral with special displays using apples and market produce. The Eucharist is a public Service open to everyone and will be followed by ‘Fun with Apples’ (including apple-bobbing) provided by the Ministry of Fun in the Churchyard. The public restaurant The Refectory will be celebrating Apple Day with a bespoke apple-y menu. (www.southwark.anglican.org/cathedral) The Lions Part will perform their annual October Plenty harvest celebration, mixing ancient seasonal customs and theatre with contemporary festivity. Their programme begins with a procession from the Globe to Borough Market, followed by games and activities from 12.30pm, and the performance in the Market will begin at 1.30pm.
