The Guild’s church (All Hallows’ by the Tower) celebrates Ascension Day with the annual Beating of the Bounds. All are invited and there is no charge (although a collection is taken during Evensong for the work of the Parish). A procession sets off from the church at 4.15pm and walks the parish boundaries before returning to the church in time for tea. Festal Evensong for Ascension Day follows at 6pm.
This year, the triennial “battle” with the Tower of London takes place at 7pm, followed by refreshments.
