The Vestry of St Michael’s Cornhill, London EC3V 9DS
8:30am for 9:00am – 6:00pm, Saturday 11th November 2023
The Lord Mayor’s Show is the world’s oldest civic procession and the Guild is incredibly privileged to play a prominent role by escorting the giant statues of Gog and Magog, the ancient defenders of the City, under the watchful eye of the Worshipful Company of Basketmakers.
The day will begin with an early breakfast in the vestry of St Michael’s Cornhill (8:30am sharp), after which members and guests will robe and make their way to the float for the Procession, which will pause on the Embankment for some much needed libation around midday, before returning to the Guildhall where the giants are displayed. After this, there will be an opportunity to watch the end of the parade whilst we make our way back to the vestry to deposit robes before rounding off what is expected to be a superb day with a two-course hot buffet and drinks reception at the City University Club.
Tickets include breakfast, entry to the parade (which includes a light lunch at Embankment), as well as a two-course buffet with wine at the reception. Places are limited owing to the unprecedented size of the procession and demand for tickets, so do please book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
Guild members and prospective members are welcome.
