Lord Mayor's Show Activities for Children
In 1213 King John awarded the City of London the right to choose its own Mayor, but he had a condition: every year, when a new Mayor took office, he had to make his way upriver to Westminster and pledge loyalty to the Crown.
The Lord Mayor of London is one of the world’s oldest elected officials, and the Lord Mayor’s Show is the public festival that has grown up around his journey.
A new Lord Mayor is appointed every year and the public parade that is made of his inauguration reflects the fact that this was once one of the most prominent offices in England.
Enjoy our range of activities below to celebrate this year's Lord Mayor's Show!
