Pittards Leather Gloves in the Lord Mayor’s Parade

For over 800 years, the newly elected Lord Mayor of London has made his or her way from the City to distant Westminster to swear loyalty to the Crown. Over the centuries this journey grew into the riotous mediæval pageant known to all as the Lord Mayor’s Show, the first outside event ever to be shown live on television and still the oldest and grandest civic procession in the world.

This year, the Leathersellers participation in the historic event was supported by Pittards, with their signature red leather gloves being made in our own glove factory in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
