The annual Covent Garden Rent Ceremony is just such a great event and, once again, I was thrilled to lead the procession around the piazza last week. The rent ceremony is a wonderful and very colourful occasion when members of the Covent Garden Area Trust pay a peppercorn rent of apples and flowers to freeholders of the land. This photo is of the 2013 event and has been kindly supplied by the Covent Garden Area Trust and is copyright Sheila Burnett.
