Upcoming firework displays in London

Lord Mayor's Show and Fireworks

  • Critics choice
  • Free

This year, the Lord Mayor's show takes place on Saturday November 8. The flamboyant procession involves thousands of people from a huge variety of London organisations and hundreds of horses, along with marching bands and floats. Starting from Mansion House at 11am, it winds its way through the historic streets of the Square Mile to the Royal Courts of Justice on the Strand. At 11.45am the State Coach leaves Guildhall and travels to Mansion House to pick up the new Lord Mayor, joining the procession near the back. Going out, the parade travels past St Paul’s Cathedral, where the Lord Mayor will pause to receive a blessing. On the way back, between 1pm and 2.30pm, the route goes via Embankment. It’s not Boris who’s the centre of attention on this occasion. The new mayor being celebrated is the annually elected ambassador of the City of London.

  1. Guildhall Gresham St, EC2V 7HH

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...
