The Pearly Kings, Queens, Princes & Princesses are an iconic and traditional community from London. Their organisation dates back to 1875, founded by Henry Croft. The group are synonymous for their mother of pearl lined suits and dresses. These garments are often handed down from generation to generation. Today ‘The Pearlies’ raise an enormous amount for charity every year and we are delighted to be welcoming them back to London’s New Year’s Day Parade in 2018.
Another British icon to feature in the 2018 parade is the Mini Moke. The Mini Moke Club are a group of Mini Moke motor enthusiasts. The car has made a name for itself globally in films such as James Bond and other 60’s and 70’s classics. This blast from the past will be roaring down the streets of Westminster on January 1st, keeping the great British icon alive.
The City of London Brass Band will be making their fourth appearance at London’s New Year’s Day Parade. Members of the Brass Band are from all over the capital and they pride themselves on being an inclusive groups with members of varying ages, background and experience. 2018 will mark the biggest LNYDP to date and we are pleased that The City of London Brass Band will be joining in the celebrations!
