Festivities and fireworks at the Lord Mayor’s Show

The Worshipful Company of Actuaries is once again inviting members of the profession, and their friends and families, to watch the Lord Mayor’s Show on Saturday 12 November and the fireworks on the Thames early that evening.

Although the procession can be viewed from the streets, there will be a limited number of places available in the Barnett Waddingham offices at 138 Cheapside, which overlook the procession route. You should arrive by 10.30am and refreshments will be provided.

The WCA has booked the Doggett’s Bar solely for its use at Doggett’s Coat and Badge next to Blackfriars Bridge on the South Bank so that you can enjoy a wonderful spectacle of the fireworks. Members will meet there at 2.30pm for a hot buffet lunch at 3.00pm. The display will be launched by the new Lord Mayor from a barge moored on the river between Blackfriars and Waterloo Bridges at 5.00pm. Space is limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment. Tickets for the lunch are £16 each.

After the procession and before the lunch, families may like to visit the funfair in Paternoster Square where there are various rides and stalls to suit all ages. There are also free guided City walks starting from St. Paul’s tube station.

To obtain an application form, email Roger Bevan roger.bevan@btinternet.com, who is the organiser for the event.
