Fortunately, ITV had a foreigner on hand to restore a sense of proportion. No-one more so than Clare Baldingthe Corporation's cheerleader for all occasions who was, of course, presenter on Saturday, as horses were involved — six of them pulling the Mayor's coach. It's a three-mile long procession, so they pack a lot in. The parade, which typically begins at about 11 am, concludes at about pm.

Here's the full schedule for the day: Procession: An epic three-mile long processionexpected to take an hour and a quarter to pass a single point, winds its way through the City, beginning at Mansion House at 11am and finishing at the Royal Courts of Justice. When the sovereign enters the city, a short ceremony usually takes place where the Lord Mayor symbolically surrenders his or her authority to the monarch by presenting the sword to them. No-one more so than Clare Baldingthe Corporation's cheerleader for all occasions who was, of course, presenter on Saturday, as horses were involved — six of them pulling the Mayor's coach. These popular icons reflect the pre-Roman legendary past of the City of London and they too are paraded by volunteers from The Guild of Young Freemen each year. When outdoors, they wear a black beaver plush tricorne hat trimmed with black ostrich feathers and a steel 'loop' for the cockade.

It takes place on the second Saturday of November each year. I am guessing those old Lord Mayor's Shows are not the most in-demand items in the archives, especially as the BBC still broadcasts the event every year. In days of old he rode on horseback or went on a barge via the River Thames depending which route was chosen. The Worshipful Company of Grocers is one of the Livery Companies of the City of London and ranks second in their order of precedence. With the Restoration the city pageant was revived, but interregnums occurred during the years of the plague and fire, and in when a quarrel broke out between Charles and the city, ending in the temporary abrogation of the charter. The crowd of citizens who accompanied the mayor on horseback to Westminster developed into a yearly pageant, which each season became more elaborate.

Lord Mayors Show, Saturday 9 November 1996. book

Saturday 9 November 1996. book walking for hours and becoming increasingly tired, the crowds kept our energy levels up. The modern Lord Mayor's procession is a direct descendant of that first journey to Westminster.

Originally this journey was mostly made by barge on the River Thamesthe usual method of transport for this route in those days. Nowadays, this festival combines traditional British pageantry with the element of carnival[4] and since it has been held on the second Saturday in November.

We would not wish to see the Lord' Mayor arrayed after the fashion of the Roman Imperator. It is lined with white silk satin; they also carry the Crystal Sceptre as a baton of office.

Here's the full schedule for the day: Procession: An epic three-mile long processionexpected to take an hour and a quarter to pass a single point, winds its way through the City, beginning at Mansion House at 11am and finishing at the Royal Courts of Justice.

The parade, which typically begins at about 11 am, concludes at about pm. If, rich as they are, they shrink from the expense of a Show that is worthy of their dignity, they might seek assistance from private individuals.

The presiding judge therefore sits to one side. The violet robe is worn at most formal meetings of the Corporation with the scarlet robe substituted on certain days or occasions as directed by the City Ceremonial Book.

The City Companies might well undertake so pleasant a task, as a kind of labour of love, among the other not very onerous duties that are laid upon them. A stand-in coach was used for some years [5] untilthe last occasion on which barges were used.

The parade then comes all the way back to Guildhall. Festival Zones: Those two festival zoneswhich are open all day and are free to visit.

The office of Lord Mayor dates from and it was a requirement of the charter establishing it that the mayor travelled to the royal enclave at Westminster to present himself to the monarch's representatives, the senior judges as Barons of the Exchequer to take an oath of loyalty to the Sovereign upon beginning his term.
