Lord Mayor's Festival
  • Plymouth City Centre

Save event

The annual Lord Mayor’s Day is changing to Lord Mayor’s Festival event this year. The event will welcome the new Lord Mayor into their role and give the people of Plymouth the opportunity to celebrate this occasion. 

This year's theme is 'Superheroes' and superheroes will be appearing on the streets of Plymouth City Centre throughout the day.

From 10:00 until 16:00 there will be a packed programme of events with fancy dress competitions for the most super superhero and a Superhero Trail hosted by shops from Drake Circus and through the city centre. There will be plenty of street entertainment with the Place De Brest becoming our very own Covent Garden area and the amazing Titan the Robot performing on the Piazza in the afternoon.

Plymouth University partners Plymouth Argyle Football Club and Plymouth University Raiders Basketball Team will be present at the Piazza. Plymouth University will have a stand to promote all our opportunities that are available to the local community.
