Over the centuries this journey has become a much loved fixture in the national cultural calendar, with hundreds of thousands of people lining the streets and millions more watching the procession on TV.

The Show’s Pageantmaster, Dominic Reid, organises the procession and will speak on the history and purpose of the Lord Mayor’s Show over the past 800 years, and its relationship with security and public order.
