Lord Mayor's Show and Fireworks

Critics' choice

When it comes to London’s traditional events, this is one of the biggies, referenced in Pepys’s diaries and in works by Canaletto and Hogarth. Given that in 2015 it will celebrate its 800th year, you can be sure we're in for something even more spectacular than usual.

The procession will fill the three-and-a-half mile stretch between Bank and Aldwych from 11am until around 2.30pm as more than 7,000 performers from all over the world fill the streets with marching, music, dance, acrobatics, colourful costumes, horses and plenty more besides. A river pageant will set off near Westminster Bridge at 8.30am, floating downriver to pass through Tower Bridge at 9.25 am, and a spectacular riverside fireworks display will take place at 5.15pm.

Grandstand seats along the route for the Lord Mayor's Show are released in June and sold on a first come, first served basis. They often sell out by the middle of October. To receive advance notice when tickets become available, join the mailing list. Find more fireworks displays in London

Just when you thought fireworks couldn't get more exciting, here comes your chance to watch them go off in a place that made gunpowder its business.

Craft activities for children including making a Guy Fawkes lantern, and there'll be live music, fairground rides, a barbecue and bar. The day rounds of at 7pm with a 15-minute fireworks finale. Booking recommended.

Yah booh hiss to the Borough of Lewisham who stage the Blackheath fireworks and in recent years have introduced floodlighting to the heath which really  reduces the impact of the display.  That's why it happens at night.  Y'know, cause it's dark or it would be.


It's obviously some 'safety' thing but actually when the heath is all grass and flat as pancake the floodlights are definitely overkill and London's done fine without them in the preceding decades.

Thank you Brent for the most wonderful firework display that I have seen in years. Usually you go to a display and there are too many people, not enough space to see the display and the fireworks are short lived. My hat off to Brent council for a wonderful display at Roundwood Park. You get there and there's so much space that you feel positivly free to run and play, children and familys dance happly through the park blowing whistles and eating sweets, there's music wafting through the air and a small but lovely fun fair. Once you arrive(passing well sign posted toilets, real toilets! Not a porta loos)the excitemnt seems to rise, suddenly over the tannoy a voice does a countdown to the fire works. Then music from jackie Wilson 'Higher and Higher' comes on, the fireworks start. My god what a display! it gets better andf better! The music moves from Asian Indian to Jazz to calssical to New orleans jazz, on each of the songs the firewoks work beautifully, fireworks that look like Indian ladies dancing to my personal favorites the gold fireworks to Frank Sinatra's 'Fly away'. Somtimes im a child again, and on the last November the 5th I stood open mouthed, it lasted for thirty minutes and it was on of the happiest thirty minutes i've had for ages, I forgot about everything. Thank you to Brent council and to the designers of the display, if you were there smiles were everywhere and still are just by the thought of it. Great evening out!!!!!

Jimmy, Boris isn't the Lord Mayor, its the Mayor of the Corporation of London who will be showing and who is getting the fireworks on the cheap...
