How to be in it
There are four categories of participation in London's New Year's Day Parade and Festival.
One of the very special things about London's Parade, since the very first event in 1987, has been the fabulous contribution of music and dance from overseas bands and performance ensembles. The event is strictly invitational for all overseas musical and dance groups. All groups who come from countries outside of the United Kingdom are offered one of the world's finest educational Performance Tour as part of their participation in the Parade and Festival. Full details of the award winning programme are available by clicking here. If you are an overseas performance group and would like to be considered further for participation in the London Parade and Festival in the future then please read the materials about the Performance Programme, and then send an e-mail requesting consideration for invitation to the event's Executive Director Bob Bone on
