Dame Kiri Te Kanawa

We are honoured that the 2020 Sheep Drive will be led by Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, one of the world’s greatest sopranos, accompanied by The Lord Mayor of London, William Russell.

The annual London Sheep Drive is a splendid day where Freemen of the City of London drive sheep across Southwark Bridge, re-enacting their historic right to bring their sheep to market in the City.

Join us also on Southwark Bridge for the Livery Fair, where many of the City of London’s ancient and modern livery companies will demonstrate their trade, craft or profession with colourful and interactive displays, along with a variety of stalls specialising in all things wool, arts & crafts and food & drink.

The Sheep Drive is a unique family day out invoking the memory of life on London’s bridges in years gone by, in aid of the Woolmen’s Company Charitable Trust and The Lord Mayor’s Appeal.
