Video: Lord Mayor’s procession finishes but still plenty of fun ahead of fireworks from Norwich Castle

18:50 07 July 2012

This year’s Lord Mayor’s procession has come to a close but the Lord Mayor’s Celebrations events in Norwich are not over yet.


Thousands of people lined the streets as the weather stayed warm and the rain stayed away, making for the usual fun atmosphere as over 50 floats wound through the city’s streets.

The parade began from Newmarket Road at 5pm and continued all the way to St Martins Palace Plain, just beyond Norwich Cathedral, via St Stephens Street, Red Lion Street, Castle Meadow and Tombland.

The traditional aspects of the 230-year-old event continued and, as always, was led by the sounds of the City of Norwich Pipe Band, closely followed by the city crier and Norwich whifflers – officers who traditionally went before processions to clear the streets.

The procession came to an end at 6.30pm but is followed by the Street Mayhem weird and wonderful entertainment around the city and then the day is brought to a close with a spectacular fireworks show from the top of Norwich Castle at 10.30pm.
