Mayoral Procession Part 2 of 3: From the Guildhall, Around the Abbey, Into the Abbey

What’s red, black and gold,
In the middle of the road,
and about to be hit by a bus?
BATH CITY MAYOR!

The mayoral procession marching in the middle of the road from yesterday’s Guildhall to tomorrow’s Abbey west door. See the costumes they are wearing here.

Bath has a new mayor now, our 780th!: The Right Worshipful The Mayor of Bath, Councillor Mrs Sharon Ball! And the theme for this year has been decreed as “Caring.” As usual, brace yourselves for the ruthless change.
