Southwark Bridge, London EC4V 3PT
8:30am – 6:00pm, Sunday 27th September

The Sheep Drive is a major City event involving some 600 Freemen of the City of London crossing the bridge with their sheep, raising thousands of pounds for the Lord Mayor’s Appeal and the Woolmens’ Charitable Trust, and the Guild has a vital part to play in this event. As marshals the Young Freemen will be the public face of the Sheep Drive, leading people across the bridge, dressed in their scarlet robes. Coverage of the event is global with images syndicated across the world.

This year’s Sheep Drive will be a particularly special occassion: a “first” in modern times, the event will have the use of the entire bridge, traffic-free for the day! The event is free for Young Freemen and their guests, and includes breakfast and a hot lunch. A standout event in our year, this event is truly one of a kind and not to be missed.

As with all Guild events, friends, family, and other guests are welcome.
We regret to inform you that the Sheep Drive has been cancelled this year and therefore tickets are not available.
