Lord Mayor's Show: 8th November from 9.30am
Parading with the Sea Cadets - march and/or support us!

Since we became a Livery Company we have participated in the Lord Mayor’s Show which is always held on the second Saturday in November following the Lord Mayor’s installation on the previous day. For the last few years we have paraded with the London Area Sea Cadets and have contributed to the cost of their float.   We will be doing this again and all members of the Company and your families are welcome to join and support us. It would be good to see if we can reach our allocated maximum of twenty Company members marching.
