The Lord Mayor's ShowThere are big changes afoot at the annual Lord Mayor's Show. There are no fireworks this year but the procession, one of highlights of the show, remains. Over 6,000 people, military marching bands and floats, Gog and Magog - the symbolic protectors of the City of London - take to the streets of London as the gilded State Coach 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. This year, to create a more engaging event, there's a wide range of family friendly activities at Bloomberg Arcade, Paternoster Square, and next to St. Paul's Cathedral. A funfair, food market, street artists, tours of the Cheapside area, and several companies showing the skills and technology related to their particular specialism are also part of the fun. To see the street procession, you can 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,.
