Driving Sheep in London - Sheep Drive 2024

Social
  • Sun 29th Sep 2024
  • 11:00

Physical event
  • Southwark Bridge, London

Following strong demand for places, we have been able to secure a further 10 tickets for a further sheep drive at 11:37am. Tickets have previously sold exceptionally fast and so we recommend that you reserve your place as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. 


The Master invites you to join him in the City of London to drive sheep across the Thames on Sunday 29th September 2024. A unique day out and a privilege to Freemen of the City of London and their guests. Historically this privileged right permitted Freemen to drive their sheep into the City without paying an admission toll. Today, the Drive is a fundraiser for the Lord Mayor's chosen charities. Hosted by the Worshipful Company of Woolmen, liveries and guilds are sure to be out in force for this important day in the social calendar of the City of London. This event is open to Freemen of the City of London and their guests.


After the success of the inaugural participation of the Guild in the Sheep Drive last year, why not join us this year to take part in this unique opportunity to herd sheep over Southwark Bridge.


The drive will take place at 11:30am, with participants required to assemble at the designated waiting point approximately 30 minutes beforehand. This is reflected in the start time shown above. Further details on timings will follow closer to the date.


Following the drive, we will have the opportunity to visit the Livery Fair to purchase crafts made by specialist wool and textile artisans, witness demonstrations by the skilled tradespeople and enjoy a bite to eat (at individual cost).


The Sheep Drive is a key event in the City's calendar and a major occasion for its livery companies. All those who have received their Freedom and become Guildmen are welcome to register. Participants are permitted and encouraged to bring guests to support them in exercising their ancient rights on this special day.


The ticket price will be £ 65 per person, with all proceeds going to The Woolmen Charity and The Lord Mayors Appeal. Only 10 tickets are available for this unique day out and do sell quickly, so we recommend that you reserve your place early.
