Lord Mayors Show in London

On Saturday morning some of the senior members of Syston Scout and Guide band will be parading with The Corp of Drums Society for the Lord Mayors Show in London.

If you turn on your TV to BBC One just after 10.45 you will be able to see all the sights and sounds of the parade.

“The lord mayor’s show has marched (and floated and trotted, and occasionally fought) through799 years of london history, surviving the black death and the blitz to arrive in the 21st century as what must be the oldest, grandest and best-loved civic pageant in the world.”

The Band will be number “34” in the parade, the Corps of drums society is made up from bands all around the country. “The Society was formed in 1977 for the preservation of the drum, fife and bugle music of the British Army.”

So don’t forget to tune in Saturday morning at 10.45am BBC One.
