She is truly magnificent this year, the Corn Queen's final touches are applied before the big day. Apple festival at Borough Market last weekend, a celebration melding both Christian and Pagan traditions.
The event kicked of with the Harvest Thanksgiving service conducted by Southwark Cathedral and accompanied by the Market's choir.
In true British fashion we were then treated to the quirky festivities probably adapted from past Pagan rites. The Green Man and Apple Queen led the procession into the market.
This is the Corn Queen's big moment, centre of the parade she trundles along in her trolley waving to the crowds. Flag waving, bell ringing and a bit of dancing they travel from Bankside to the market.
The afternoon is filled with story telling, conker fights, Morris Dancing (this has to be one of the quirkiest dances ever invented) and of course lots of apple tastings and cider drinking.
