Lord Mayor’s Show


The Lord Mayors show is one of the best known annual events in London as well as one of the longest established dating back to the 16th century. Bring on the mid 90’s; this is where Austen Lewis began their journey working direct for the Pageant Master, generating a great relationship based on hard work and trust.


Austen Lewis was given this amazing opportunity to pitch a seating stand for this famous historical event, a seating stand that could be adapted with add-ons to reflect ticket sales.


With Austen Lewis being experts in the field of manufacturing seating systems we relished the challenge to operate in and around St Paul’s Cathedral. The gardens and busy surrounding roads coupled with the added risk regarding working alongside the public we consider this project to be one of our most challenging. Austen Lewis adapted their system to allow special components at short notice, providing a smooth trusted install and de-rig year after year.
