The Circus Comes To Town is the theme for this Saturday’s Lord Mayor’s Procession and on the EDP and Norwich Evening News float we will be joined by some very special guests.

We will be celebrating the Circus250 anniversary by hosting Pablo, the circus themed GoGoHare, as well as performers from Lost in Translation Circus and My First Circus: The Circus Child. Pablo, who has been designed by artist Antonella Beschorner, is linked to the GoGoHares summer-long art trails being brought to Norwich and Norfolk by children’s charity Break and Wild in Art. He usually resides at intu Chapelfield where GoGo fans can buy £10 raffle tickets to be in with a chance of winning the colourful sculpture.

Saturday’s Lord Mayor’s Procession from St Stephens Road to Palace Street will start at 6pm, one hour later than originally scheduled, due to England’s World Cup match. The 5K Road Race immediately before the procession will start at 5:45pm.

Our Lord Mayor’s Celebration coverage is sponsored by First Eastern Counties.
