This weekend, it’s time for the Lord Mayor’s Show.

A celebration of diversity in the capital, the Lord Mayor’s Show sees more than 6,000 people walk through the streets in a colourful procession of acrobats, costumes, music and dancing.

The procession begins at 11am at Mansion House following a military flypast. It will travel down Cheapside to St Paul’s Cathedral, where the Lord Mayor will be blessed before proceeding to the Royal Courts of Justice on the Strand.

At 5pm, the Lord Mayor launches a spectacular fireworks display on the Thames between Blackfriars Bridge and Waterloo Bridge.
