A record number of 1,500 children and young people from across London are taking part in this year's Children's Parade which travels in a noisy and colourful cavalcade from Guildhall Yard to the steps of St Paul's Cathedral as part of the City of London Festival. In 2014, classic children's stories provide the inspiration for colourful costumes and masks, with the parade finishing in a musical performance on the west steps of St Paul's Cathedral.

 

About St Paul's Cathedral

Being the cathedral of the capital city, St Paul's is officially the spiritual home of Great Britain. The funerals of Lord Nelson, the Duke of Wellington and Sir Winston Churchill were conducted inside the church's fortress-like walls, as was the elaborate fairy-tale wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer.
