What’s on this Weekend
When it comes to London’s traditional events, this is one of the biggies, referenced in Pepys’s diaries and in works by Canaletto and Hogarth. Given that in 2015 it will celebrate its 800th year, you can be sure we’re in for something even more spectacular than usual. The procession will fill the three-and-a-half mile stretch between Bank and Aldwych from 11am until around 2.30pm as more than 7,000 performers from all over the world fill the streets with marching, music, dance, acrobatics, colourful costumes, horses and plenty more besides. A river pageant will set off near Westminster Bridge at 8.30am, floating downriver to pass through Tower Bridge at 9.25am, and a spectacular riverside fireworks display will take place at 5.15pm. From 3pm City of London Guides will be leading free walking tours to keep the crowds entertained in the lull between procession and fireworks.
