11/10 - Lord Mayors Show 10

"Lord Mayor''s Show 10" The new Lord Mayor requested that the river pagent be reinstated after a gap of over 80 years. This Historic show is over 800 years old and used to be water based. The great stink in the 1800's forced the pagent off the water and it has only been run a few times since. The last in about 1927 so it is great to see 20 traditional rowing boats reviving a lost tradition.
