The 800th anniversary Lord Mayor's Show Programme

The Official Programme for the Lord Mayor’s Show 2015, published by Illustrated London News, with a brand new look to mark the Show’s 800th anniversary.

The cover image is designed by Sir Peter Blake of Sgt. Pepper fame, who used historic and modern images to create a tapestry of the Procession through time. The cover also features the historic Doves typeface – which was lost to the Thames in a printers’ dispute over a century ago, and recovered this year.

Inside, the programme features an introduction by Melvyn Bragg reflecting on the show’s 800-year history, as well as interviews with the new Lord Mayor and people behind the scenes. Historical commentary explores special aspects of the show’s past – its forgotten treasures and living spirit.

The order of procession and a bespoke map of the event make this a useful guide to the day, as well as a worthy memento of the anniversary.
