Time is running out for boats wishing to take part in the biggest pageant to take place on the Thames in over 300 years
Boaters wishing to take part in next year’s Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant have less than two weeks left to apply for inclusion. Registration closes on 31 October 2011, and a group including representatives from the river community, boat clubs and associations will then select 1000 boats to take part in the event on Sunday 3 June 2012.
“Time is running out for all those who wish to take part”, said pageant master Adrian Evans, “We have had an amazing response and are thrilled with the number and variety of wonderful vessels that have already registered”.
The 12.5-mile-long flotilla will be the biggest river pageant to take place on the Thames since the reign of Charles II, three and a half centuries ago, and will stretch from Hammersmith in the west of London to Greenwich in the east.
