London Montage

Pomp, Parades and Play

A very informative talk relating to the work that takes place by the Park Manager of St James’s Park regarding the preparations for Ceremonial and other occasions.  There are many regular events such as The London Marathon, Trooping the Colour, Military Beating Retreat, State Visits, Remembrance Sunday and ex-service organisations parades to name a few.

We will all remember the wonderful Royal Wedding in April 2011 of Catherine Middleton to HRH Prince William of Wales (now The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge)  when St James’s Park takes in the ceremonial route to Buckingham Palace and the park needs to look its best prior and during such a special occasion. This year the team will continue to undertake regular events but also the eyes of the world and the focus will be on the preparations for HM The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations and London 2012, with Beach Volleyball on Horseguards Parade.
