Sonali and Chris will be meeting some of the spectacular procession’s 7,000 participants as well as a few of the half a million people who line the streets between Bank and Aldwych to cheer on the parade. Dan will provide commentary.

This year, Alan Yarrow will be welcomed as London’s 687th Lord Mayor of the City of London. He will succeed Fiona Woolf, who was only the second woman to hold the post in its 800 year history.

Don’t miss the annual ceremonial parade at 10.45 on Saturday 8th November on BBC One and BBC One HD. If you want to send a good luck message to any of the participants or contact the show, email lordmayorsshow@bbc.co.uk or use the hashtag #BBCLMS on twitter.
