The Lord Mayor’s Show in London is one of our favourite events on the calendar. We’ve been making custom inflatables, including special shapes and parade balloons, for this world-famous spectacular for more than 20 years! It is great fun when we get involved in all the razzmatazz and we love to help different groups get themselves noticed among the crowds.
This year, we were proud to create some really eye-catching inflatables for both the Army Cadets and the Tallow Chandlers Company.
Army Cadets’ Parade Sphere
The Army Cadets wanted a parade sphere, emblazoned with their badge and message, to use as they marched in the Lord Mayor’s Show. Over 50 young cadets and adult instructors joined the parade. It was impressive to see and they certainly drew lots of attention to the charities they supported over the year. Doesn’t their inflatable look fantastic? They were delighted and they certainly stood out at this huge public event.
Parade balloons are a great way to promote your brand or identity at an outside event. They are perfect for a march like the Lord Mayor’s Show or a carnival or demonstration.
Tallow Chandlers’ Custom Inflatable Candle
The Tallow Chandlers is one of the City of London’s 109 Livery Companies, which began as a trade organisation. Now they focus on charity work and they wanted to “shout” about this at the Show. Their entry in the show was the largest of any, with eighty marchers dressed in the Company’s specially designed uniform. They also had a float, complemented by two vintage buses and two vintage cars. Whatever inflatable we designed and made had to match their impressive turnout. We thought the idea of a bespoke inflatable candle was inspired – and it was definitely eye-catching! We hope the giant inflatable helium-filled balloon in the shape of a tallow candle, complete with mock flame on the top, brought light to their endeavours. They were really pleased with it and the crowds gave it a rapturous reception.
