The Lord Mayor's Show 2018

The Lord Mayor's Show

Fri 10 Nov 2017

The Lord Mayor's Show will be held this year on the 10 November.

Occurring annually, The Lord Mayor's Show is one of London's longest-established events dating back to 1215 with the well-founded mistrust of King John.

The King insisted that every new Mayor make a journey upriver to distant Westminster and swear loyalty to the crown and thus, the journey has become one of London's favourite rituals.
