Livery Fair – Visitors

The Livery Fair, located at The Monument to the Great Fire of London, one of London’s most outstanding landmarks and visitor attractions, is a unique opportunity to be a part of recreating historic community activities that took place on and around London’s bridges.

Whilst being an integral part of the day for supporters of the Sheep Drive, the Livery Fair also enables a number of the City of London liveries – ancient and modern, to showcase to the public what they do and the charitable work they support, with skilled tradespeople conducting interactive demonstrations of their fascinating and ever-evolving trades.

The Livery Fair also brings together a number of specialist stall holders, displaying and selling their wool-based products, textiles, arts and crafts, quality gifts and food & drink. Other fun activities include expert blade shearing displays and some wonderful rare breed sheep!

All of this takes place in support of the celebratory re-enactment of Freemen exercising their right to drive their sheep over the Thames, toll free into the City to market across nearby London Bridge.

SHEEP DRIVE: Private Access, Pre-booked – Access to the Sheep Drive, which will occupy the downstream walkway on London Bridge, is restricted to registered and pre-booked Freemen of the City of London and their guests, to enable the remainder of the bridge to be open to vehicular and pedestrian traffic.

LIVERY FAIR: Public Access, Free-of Charge – The Livery Fair, located nearby at The Monument also offers visitors the opportunity to learn all about the Sheep Drive and the charitable causes it supports, ensuring that everyone can enjoy the atmosphere and spirit of this wonderful occasion.
