The Lord Mayor’s Show is unique. It’s the longest, oldest, most popular procession in the world. A spectacular Show with over 150 very colourful and
creative floats, and crowds of people lining the City streets to welcome the new Lord Mayor of London.
Tickets for the North Stand will be available from The Clerk for those wishing to attend. The stand is situated close to St Paul’s Cathedral where the Lord Mayor descends from his carriage. It provides prominent and perfect views of the Show from start to finish.
Tickets are limited so get in early to avoid disappointment!
Christmas Carol Service: St. Peter ad Vincula, H.M. Tower of London
We always end the year on a high with our annual Christmas Carol Service at the Tower of London in the historic Chapel Royal of St Peter ad Vincula. This is an extremely popular event and this year, supper takes place at Trinity House, a short walk from the Tower.
The Service starts promptly at 6.30p.m. accompanied by a superb choir who lead the traditional Carols.
It’s a unique experience to attend a service in such an historic chapel, and a fantastic occasion for Liverymen and Freemen to enjoy with guests, family and friends.
