Becket Pageant for London

Becket Pageant for London
 
 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
 Free

Guildhall Yard will be filled with a Livery Fair, theatre and food to celebrate London's former Patron Saint, Thomas Becket.

Inspired by the guildsmen who staged the original pageant of 1519, and Becket’s origins as the son of a City merchant, Guildhall Yard will be styled as an immersive 16th century experience with period entertainers and a vibrant Livery Crafts Fair. Visitors will be invited to imagine themselves as Tudor Londoners, learn about a pivotal period in British history, sample themed food and drink - including a specially brewed Becket Beer! - and watch skilled livery craft displays in an open air, Covid-secure environment.

Entrance will be free to the public​.

Up to eighteen Livery Companies will showcase the important contribution of the guilds past and present to the success of the City, whilst providing practical demonstrations of their individual trades, including the evolution from old technologies to new.

There will be an opportunity to purchase hand crafted merchandise direct from the stall-holders.

A musical inspired by a 1519 City pageant will also be performed - tickets for that need to be paid for separately in advance.
