Lord Mayor’s Celebration

July 6, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - July 8, 2018 @ 3:30 pm

A parade of life-size elephant puppets will launch this year’s Lord Mayor’s Celebration in style, as the city prepares to celebrate all things circus. Friday’s parade (7pm) will recreate the excitement of years gone by when visiting circus companies would parade their animals and performers through the streets to announce their arrival in town.

Saturday promises fun and entertainment for the whole family, with music and performers around every corner, as well as worldwide cuisine from Norwich Market and Feast on the Street.

Clowns, acrobats and jugglers join life-size elephants at the pinnacle of the city’s favourite street party, the Lord Mayor’s Procession (5pm). Grab a flag, line the streets and collect as many stickers as you can as we raise money for this year’s civic charity.

Four live music stages across the city and the return of the InTouch Pirate Party means music lovers will be spoilt for choice – whether its local bands or classic pop tunes that get you dancing.

And don’t miss the firework finale, as always, set to music from Norwich Castle (10:30pm).

Day three of the festivities includes the return of Urban Art Fair, The Great Norwich Duck Race and the chance to explore The Bishop of Norwich Open Gardens.

Activities taking place across the weekend include free outdoor performances of ‘At the Turning of the Tide’ and the funfair in Chapelfield Gardens.
