The Lord Mayor’s Show: A show like no other!

The City of London has always known how to put on a good show - but the Lord Mayor’s Show is something even more special!

11 November 2017 | Visit website

Enjoy a big slice of City history at the Lord Mayor's Show this November. The gold coach, Sheriffs, pikemen, musketeers, City Marshall, Gog and Magog, Aldermen and liverymen all represent the rich history of the day and its original purpose of ‘showing’ the new Lord Mayor to the people. And alongside the best of the old, will be the best of the new - community groups, charities, companies, military units, overseas trade organisations and plenty of musicians.

The day starts and ends on the Thames: a river arrival by the new Lord Mayor in the morning and a spectacular fireworks display at the end of the afternoon. Between then more than 7,000 people, 200 horses and over 150 floats will be entertaining the crowds as they travel from Mansion House to the Royal Courts of Justice and back in a riotous display of colour, sound and imagination.

The Lord Mayor's Show takes place on 11 November.
