Plymouth preparing for Lord Mayor's Day 2013
It may be almost four months away but Plymouth City Council is already busy preparing for Lord Mayor’s Day and its events team wants to hear from anyone interested in taking part.
This year’s theme will be ‘Plymouth’s Hidden History’ and anyone can get involved – from individual people to community groups, clubs and organisations.
The celebrations will take place in the city centre on Saturday 18 May and will be a chance for residents and visitors to celebrate Plymouth's history and meet the new Lord Mayor in a fantastic carnival atmosphere.
Spectators will line the streets for a spectacular walking parade featuring bright and colourful costumes, uniforms and dynamic displays, which will start at Plymouth University, progress through Cornwall Street and into New George Street before finishing on the city centre piazza.
This is the fourth year the Council has linked with the university, who will be again holding their Community Open House event in the Roland Levinsky Building.
Deputy Council Leader Peter Smith, said: "Lord Mayor's Day is always a great day out, with brilliant costumes, exciting demonstrations and displays, live music and performances and lots of family activities. 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 the Council would like to hear from you!
