The Lord Mayor’s Show 2019

The Lord Mayor’s Show is one of the best-known annual events in London as well as one of the longest-established, dating back to the 16th century.

The Lord Mayor’s Show is 804 years old. It has been a fixture of London life for centuries until it became the largest civil procession in the world and its most enduring television program in the world.

The modern Show is a joyful civic parade of over 6000 people, with dozens of bands, carriages, military detachments, inflatables, dance companies, giant contraptions and ceremonial exhibits. Each year is different and surprising, combining the London’s ancient pomp, the turbulent heritage and modern dynamism to create a show unlike anything else in the world.


The Show takes place on Saturday 9th of November and it starts at 11:00 in the City of London and to get the best view it is better you get there by about 10:15 (or you can book grandstand seats).

The fantastic procession starts from Mansion House (Bank Junction) until the Royal Courts (on the Strand) and back again.

Lord Mayor Elected

The 692nd Lord Mayor of London is going to be Alderman William Russell of the Bread Street ward. He is Lord Mayor Elect until the day before the Show.


History and Origins of the Show

The Mayor of London was appointed by King John over 800 years ago, in a desperate attempt to bring the city to his side during the conflict with his rebellious Barons. This didn’t really work out the way he planned.
