800 years of mayoralty
The Guildhall with its historic atmosphere was the perfect place for the celebration of the 800th year of the Lord Mayoralty which was hosted by The Right Worshipful the Lord Mayor of Leicester, Councillor Roger Blackmore and the Lady Mayoress Mrs Hilary Blackmore. The civic reception took place on the 7th September 2009
This event also raised funds for the Lord Mayor's Appeal which this year is for the Leicester Children's Holiday Centre (Mablethorpe).
There was a number of historical characters in costume and a presentation on the history of the mayoralty of Leicester.
