Lord Mayor's Day 2015
This year’s Lord Mayor’s Day will take place in Plymouth City Centre on Saturday 6 June between 10am and 5pm. You can find Radio Plymouth enjoying the day sponsored by Amey.
The annual event will welcome the new Lord Mayor into their role and will give the opportunity for the people of Plymouth to celebrate this occasion.

There will be a children’s activity area on Guildhall Square between 11am and 5pm, street entertainment by the Sundial and Place de Brest and some children’s fairground rides.
