London’s New Year’s Day Parade


London’s New Year’s Day Parade and Festival or LNYDP, justifiably bills itself as ‘The Greatest Event in the Greatest City in the World’. With a legacy spanning over 30 years, LNYDP annually boasts 8,000 performers drawn from 20 countries around the world. The audience on the historic Parade route, through The City of Westminster, touched two thirds of a million each year. 300 million people, worldwide, watched the in-house produced, three and a half hour live TV broadcast of the event. LNYDP is not just a parade but is a festival of music too and, just as important as the Parade, is the fabulous series of Gala concerts played out in London’s most celebrated music venues over New Year’s week.
