See the Lord Mayor

Not often us commoners get to lay eye on a Lord Mayor, but the new one will be out today, riding around in his shiny coach and waving at the likes of you and me, for today is the day of the Lord Mayor's Show.

Lord Mayors have been coming out for the show for nearly 800 years, marching - we are told - through everything from the black death to the blitz. Famously, the only time the procession has been cancelled was for the Duke of Wellington's Funeral in 1832.

The procession sets off from Guildhall at 11am, passing Mansion, Bank and St Pauls to deliver the new Lord Mayor to the Royal Courts of Justice on the Strand at about 12.40pm.
