On 29th October 2020, project PI Tracey Hill brought the 1620 Lord Mayor’s Show to life with a live tweet event. This post rounds up the highlights of the day.

The event generated excitement among the City government and livery companies- even the present Lord Mayor got in on the action!

David Bartle, archivist of the Haberdashers’ Company, and Dominic Reid, the City’s Pageantmaster, gave introductions.

Tracey then took us through the sights (and sounds) of the show.
