Organisers of London’s New Year’s Day Parade are planning to send a live TV & Online wake up call to millions across continents– with a Welcome Back message to the World.
LNYDP, the last organisation to hold a major event in the Capital prior to Lockdown – is the very first to commit to holding the next major and memorable event at the turn of the year.
Destination Events are in advanced talks with Westminster City Council and other bodies to deliver static performances at two iconic locations (yet to be revealed) – bringing the World the indefatigable message that the spirit of London is as alive, well and welcoming as ever.
Although it will be before an invited audience only, as ever the World will be watching as it’s screened online – and LNYDP having sealed a deal with American Public Television to screen the full three-and-a-half-hour extravaganza live across the USA.
The start time of 12 Noon is set in stone for the 35th turn of year tradition that has become a household name across continents. This unique year will include an eclectic mix of performance from big name artists and community and cultural performance groups.
Full details will be released in the weeks to come but the ‘save the date’ will be a welcome boon to all those wishing to get back to some form of normality as quickly as possible.
Bob Bone, Executive Director of LNYDP said: “Yes It’s going to look a little different – but I am delighted to say we are back to give London a lift.
“We felt it imperative that we didn’t let the turn of year tradition lapse even for a year, but instead wanted to tell the World that London is buzzing once more and, when circumstances permit, the most amazing place to visit .”
Steve Summers, Chair of the London Mayor’s Association said: “Well done Bob and the team, I knew you wouldn’t let London down. This could put a smile back on our faces.”
The event(s) are supported by BBC Radio London 94.9 – who will be providing full coverage in the run up to and the day itself.
LNYDP 2021 will be available to watch LIVE via our website, from 12 Midday on January 1st!
