Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

London’s New Year’s Day Parade was the last organisation to hold a major event in the capital before lockdown hit in March, and it’s still determined to go ahead despite the new year beginning in the midst of Tier 4 restrictions. The 35th LNYDP will taking place online. 

The virtual American-style extravaganza will include an eclectic mix of performances from big name artists and community and cultural performance groups. Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Jamie Cullum will be on the bill, alongside numerous US marching bands and cheerleaders that have been forced to defer their performance trips. 

You can watch the parade on TV channel London Live, or and via LNYDP’s website.
