It is a fantastic festival, the biggest event in London this year, and it is free, he said. I thor- oughly recommend the Feast On The Bridge, which is a gigantic medieval binge, and the amazing night procession on Sunday. The colourful half-mile long night parade will leave Embankment on Sunday at 7.15pm to arrive at the National Theatre for 9.30pm. The fireworks begin at 9.45pm between Waterloo and Blackfriars Bridges. Southwark Bridge will be closed to traffic for Feast On The Bridge, which kicks off at noon tomorrow, where visitors will have the chance to milk a cow, churn butter or tread grapes to be made into wine. Banqueting A SPECTACULAR harvest festival and a night carnival featuring 2,000 performers in illuminated costumes are among the highlights at the Mayors Thames Festival this weekend. Musicians, dancers and mas- queraders will parade with lan- terns and flaming torches from Victoria Embankment over Blackfriars Bridge to the National Theatre for the dramatic close of the festival on Sunday night. Up to one million people are expected to descend on the river- side for the two-day event -- Londons largest free arts festival -- which will also feature break- dancers, jive lessons, street theatre and a fireworks display. And 40 classic boats, including vintage oyster smacks and Thames barges, will moor in St Katharine Docks, with sailors in period costume.
