Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant

Music, Classical and opera Free
Leaving from Battersea Bridge and sailing the seven miles to Tower Bridge, 1,000 boats of all shapes and sizes make the 75-minute journey, accompanying Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in her barge. They are divided into ten groups, each led by a Herald Music Barge, including The Royal Jubilee Bells, The Academy of Ancient Music playing Handel's 'Water Music' and A 'New Water Music' barge featuring an ensemble playing new variations on Handel's original.
