Last weekend, the talented dancers and performers of La Parade Amoureuse pranced down the Roman Road as part of the Greenwich & Docklands International Festival.
After weeks of anticipation, the dance troop made their way down the high street, some carrying amazing illuminated deer.
Social media was alight with feedback from locals – BBC and ITV2 presenter Jonny Nelson even caught site of the precession.

Bradley Hemming, art director and founder of the Greenwich & Docklands Festival, said he chose the Roman because it is a great venue for precessions: ‘The long straight road gives such a perfect backdrop.’
Processions in previous years have included giant insects and giant puppets. One performance included interactions with Roman Road market traders.
We loved receiving all of your amazing photos from the evening, so it is thanks to our readers that we can share this gallery.
