The Lord Mayor's ShowA colourful parade of over 6,000 people, marching bands, military groups, carriages and dance troupes makes its way through the streets of London at the annual Lord Mayor's Show. There are no fireworks this year but the procession, one of highlights of the show, remains and there's free family entertainment at Bloomberg Arcade, Paternoster Square next to St. Paul's Cathedral. Gog and Magog - the symbolic protectors of the City of London - are part of the parade as is the gilded State Coach which carries the newly elected Lord Mayor. It's a spectacle and celebration that goes back 800 years and a wonderful day of pomp and pageantry. Family friendly activities at Bloomberg Arcade and Paternoster Square include a funfair, food market, street artists and dancing wheelie bins. Several companies show the skills and technology related to their particular specialism. To see the street procession, watch the outward journey from 11am to 12noon between Bank and St. Paul's. For a quieter version, watch the return leg from 1.15pm to 2.30pm in the Embankment area. Head through St. Paul's churchyard to the Paternoster Festival Zone to see some strange and wonderful acts.
