Lord Mayor’s Show Drop-in Lunch

Event Details

The Lord Mayor’s Show is one of the greatest shows on earth and is the oldest annual parade to have run almost uninterrupted since its inception in the world.  Mark the event with lunch at the city’s oldest extant Livery Hall.

This year, the Apothecaries will be joining the parade. Places in the parade are limited, but you can come along to wave as your colleagues pass!

Our Hall is in a prime location on the show route.  You can watch the show on Ludgate Hill or outside St Paul’s, and get to the Hall without having to cross any barriers and then drop down to Victoria Street and watch it all over again – still without barriers!  The Hall is also very handy for Blackfriars Station, and an excellent place to drop off coats and umbrellas if the sun is shining.

The Hall will be open from 10.00 am.  Tea and coffee will be available; we provide take-away cups so you can dash off to watch the parade (or if you prefer to be environmentally friendly, bring your own reusable, take-away mug and fill up!).  There will be a rolling buffet with wine available between 12.00 pm and 2.00 pm.  Once you have booked, you can drop in at any point between those times, have your lunch, and go back to the show.  This way, you won’t have to worry about rushing off for lunch, just as the parade gets to where you are standing.

Children are very welcome – this will be a very relaxed day, so feel free to bring friends and family.
