A day where Freemen of the City of London drive sheep across the Thames, re-enacting their historic right to bring their sheep to market in the city, always attended by a special guest and the Lord Mayor of London, Alderman William Russell.
Accompanied by the Livery Fair, where many of the City of London’s ancient and modern livery companies demonstrate their trade, craft or profession with colourful and interactive displays, along with a variety of stalls specialising in all things wool, arts & crafts and food & drink.
Truly a unique family day out invoking the memory of life on London’s bridges in years gone by, in aid of the Woolmen’s Company Charitable Trust and The Lord Mayor’s Appeal.
