Lord Mayor’s Day needs you!

We’re gearing up for Lord Mayor’s Day on Saturday 6 June and our events team wants to hear from anyone interested in taking part.

This year’s theme will be ‘the 200th Anniversary of Napoleon on HMS Bellerophon in Plymouth Sound’ and anyone can get involved – from individual people to community groups, clubs and organisations.

The day will be a great chance for residents and visitors to celebrate Plymouth’s history and meet the new Lord Mayor in a fun, carnival atmosphere.

Spectators will line the streets for an exciting walking parade featuring bright and colourful costumes, uniforms and dynamic displays, which will start at Drake’s Place Garden in Plymouth University before progressing through Cornwall Street and New George Street and finishing on the city centre piazza.

This is the sixth year the Council has linked with the university, which will be holding its ‘Set Sail with Plymouth University’ event on the campus.

Deputy Council Leader Peter Smith said: “We want even more community groups and organisations to get involved with Lord Mayor’s Day this year. People of all ages are guaranteed to have a fantastic time, whether taking part or just coming along to join in the fun.”

Anyone can take part in the event – walking in the parade, providing music, dance or entertainment, running a charity stall, showcasing a club display or hosting a community exhibition. Whatever you would like to do, we would like to hear from you.
