Lord Mayor’s Show : 14 November 2015

Flotilla

As in previous years, the Lord Mayor entered the City of London at the start of Lord Mayor’s Show day, on Saturday 14 November 2015, by river. Weather conditions were such that the original plan for him to be rowed down the River on the Gloriana had to be changed and instead he was transported on a power boat. However, he was still escorted by a flotilla of traditional Thames barges and small boats, amongst which was our very own Barbers’ Cutter. Members of the Company rowed the Master and Mistress Barber from Westminster to HMS President in the City of London, travelling under Tower Bridge, which opened in salute to the Lord Mayor.
