This year, Peter Holder (Acting Organist) plays Iain Farrington’s Animal Parade, narrated by actor and TV presenter Christopher Biggins.

Animal Parade is a musical depiction of ten familiar animals, from the tallest to the fastest, the biggest to the nastiest. This affectionate caricature of wildlife also offers a lively introduction to the organ - perfect for families.

Performances lasting 20 minutes are offered at 1pm, 2pm, and 3pm.

The Lord Mayor’s Show is the world’s oldest pageant. The historic procession starts at 11am and there are events all day with fireworks over the Thames to finish.

The Blessing of the Lord Mayor by the Dean of St Paul’s takes place at 12 noon. The celebration concludes with a magnificent fireworks display, beginning at 5.15pm
