Enjoy the 800th Anniversary of The Lord Mayor's Show


Every year on the second Saturday of November, the City turns out to welcome the new Lord Mayor – and it does so in exquisite style.

2015 marks 800 years since the story of the first Lord Mayor’s Show, and to celebrate, all the different faces of the Square Mile will come together in a spectacle that is bigger and better than ever before. A grand parade of pomp military bands, vibrant community groups and traditional pikemen will be cheered on by a crowd of half a million people and watched live on the BBC by millions more.

The procession will travel from Mansion House to the Royal Courts of Justice and back to Mansion House via Victoria Embankment. The event is a fantastic opportunity for every generation to take part in eight centuries of London history and to enjoy the liveliest and most colourful day on the City’s calendar.
