New Years Day Parade from London

  • Fred Vigeant

London’s New Year’s Day Parade is a cherished turn-of-year tradition bringing pomp, circumstance and good old-fashioned fun to the U.K. capital.

WITF presents live coverage of the parade at 7:00 AM New Years Day.  London’s Deputy Lieutenant Roger Bramble delivering a goodwill message from the Queen, followed by three and a half hours of music, dance, floats, balloons and more, all along a route of iconic London locations.

The parade showcases the kaleidoscope of culture and color that brings 500,000 spectators to London each year.

The 2020 event features more than 8,000 performers from numerous nations, including twenty marching bands and 1,000 cheerleaders from U.S. high schools and universities.

The parade coverage begins live at 7:00 AM and continues for three and a half hours.  We’ll repeat the concert at 10:30 AM.
