About us

Celebrating Plymouth's ocean and green spaces 

Enjoy a great day out with the kids when the Lord Mayor’s Festival returns on Saturday 21 May, welcoming our new Lord Mayor of Plymouth to the role.

This year, the free family-friendly event celebrates Plymouth’s ocean and green spaces and there’s lots to learn and explore!

Enjoy the huge programme of entertainment which includes interactive activities, street performers, a fun trail through the city centre with amazing prizes to be won, stage performances, workshops and much more.

Make sure you don’t miss the Space Odyssey Dome which will be located in Plymouth Guildhall. Experience the incredible virtual and interactive learning experience based around the effects of climate change and how we can create a more sustainable future. There will be free showings each hour for 40 minutes – there's no need to book, just turn up at the Guildhall foyer and you will be taken to the show!

Families can also get involved in a number of great workshops on the day. Decorate a map of the future of Plymouth, make your own shipwreck charts of Plymouth Sound or learn about ocean conservation and green spaces, as well as enjoying the interactive junk band with Weapons of Sound.

On the stage, visitors can enjoy performances from local dance and theatre groups and choirs including the energetic Street Factory.

There will also be more than 40 stalls to explore, showcasing Plymouth’s amazing charities and community organisations and all the brilliant work they do, alongside food and craft stalls.
