London: Palm Sunday processions

Sunday 1 April is Palm Sunday when congregations meet outside their church and process into the building which for the week will be Jerusalem. This recalls Jesus’ ride on a donkey from Bethany to the Temple in Jerusalem

The Southwark Cathedral procession starts at 11am in Borough Market.

St Bartholomew the Great starts its procession at 11am in nearby St Bartholomew the Less.

If you want a procession with donkeys you need to go to St Giles Cripplegate in The Barbican (10am) or St Paul’s Cathedral (11am in Paternoster Square). St Peter’s Vauxhall is processing to St Anselm’s (10.30am) with just one donkey booked.

All Hallows-by-the-Tower begins its service at 11am in the charming ruin of St Dunstan-in-the-East in Idol Lane. (Those staying at All Hallows for the bring and share lunch should take along a pudding if their surname begins with letters A-K or something savoury if it is L-Z.)
