Lord Mayor’s Parade – Update

Takes place on Saturday June 3rd 2006.
There will be African and Irish dancers, and martial arts performances starting from St George’s Hall at 11.45am.

The event, which starts at 1pm, is also set to be the greenest parade on record – rickshaws and a horse-drawn dray will take their place alongside pedal-powered floats, an electric vehicle and hundreds of costumed performers on foot.

Walk the Plank and the Liverpool Lantern Company are working together with a number of community groups to expand the scale of the floats in this year’s Parade. Both arts companies are known for their imaginative design and large-scale outdoor theatre, and they promise to bring a dose of theatrical magic to the five floats they are creating. Fifteen artists, including some of the most experienced carnival artists in the UK, will be working alongside children, young people and adults to ensure Liverpool Performs…A Great Day Out on 3 June. For more information about either company visit www.walktheplank.co.uk

  5. Hi Alan I have been the organiser of the Lord Mayor’s Parade for over 10 years and this year’s parade was the best yet in the way of content. The new comunity floats where wonderful and a great job was done by walk the plank and the lantern company. The weather was the best that I have experienced for over 6 years and this of course helped the carnival sprit. I have to mention The Liverpool Samba School as they were out of this world, they danced and pranced and Sambad for over one and a half miles and did’nt miss a beat.
    A BIG WELL DONE TO ALL WHO TOOK PART AND WE HOPE TO SEE THEM PLUM MANY OTHERS NEXT YEAR
