Thank you for logging on to the pearly King and Prince of Finsbury's site. My name is John (pearly king)  and my son's name is Darren (pearly prince) We are both proud to be members of the non profit charitable organisation of London pearly kings and queens society charity number 1091098.

I am also a proud ex member of her majesty's armed forces (army) of which we attend many military events around London supporting their events.

 

The London pearly kings and queens society attend many events all over London and the home counties We also attend lots of sheltered homes bringing a few of the old cockney songs for a good old fashion sing A long and knees-up. You can find us collecting for the charities that we support as a society on our public events page. We also do many talks around London and the home counties on the pearly kings and queens. We have also had the pleasure of doing many photo-shoots and appearing on various television programme's we have also carried out lots of corporate events to make the visitors to London feel welcome in our capitol city.


Although my wife in her own right come from a costermonger family 'Coopers' from St Pancras she doesn't wear the buttons she is a loyal and true supporter of our society and what we stand for keeping her family and other pearly family traditions alive.


I was born in the London borough of Finsbury (Not Finsbury park) and it was the pinnacle of my life when a great pearly king 'Arthur Rackley' the pearly king of Upminster presented me his family title of Finsbury because it was owned by him. We will honour and care for this title and maintain the motto of our society.
