London New Years Day Parade ‘All The Queens Horses’
Will you be at the London New Years Day Parade?
To get your horsey fix over the festive season and a generous sprinkling of magic and fantasy, how about ‘All The Queens Horses’ at The London New Year’s Day Parade?
Amongst jugglers, cheerleaders, acrobats, clowns and marching bands, the parade on 1st January 2016 will also feature two teams of riders and 64 horses. Invited for selection from all over the UK and travelling from as far afield as Belgium to appear in this annual event, the riders range from just six years old through to late seventies and are unpaid volunteers unified in their passion for horses and bringing equestrianism to the capital!
The equestrian element of the parade starts off 11.45am at Piccadilly Circus and finishes at Parliament, with the return route back via the Horse Guards, The Mall and Buckingham Palace.
Each year the parade celebrates a particular theme, with previous year’s celebrating the ‘Swinging Sixties’ and ‘Hats Off For London’ and the most recently ‘London Moving’. For 2016 the parade takes on ‘A Magical Thirty Years ’ to celebrate the main parade’s 30th year and amongst the creative equestrian costumes planned, magical figures from your childhood and present day will all be making a special appearance!
Majestic horses and carriages, side-saddle and Iberian horses add to the equestrian display and the event is free to watch, with plenty to see and keep everyone entertained!
What better way to spend New Years Day!
