Conceived and organised by aerial marketing specialists Exclusive Ballooning, the Lord Mayor’s Hot Air Balloon Regatta is an annual event which sees fifty hot air balloons flying over central London raising money and awareness for the Lord Mayor’s charity, as well as raising the profile internationally for the City of London and those associated with it. The inaugural event which started in 2015 and is fully supported by Mansion House, is now a regular sight in June each year over the skies of our wonderful City.
This year for the first time the event will launch from the runway of London City Airport. Due to the weather dependant nature of this event, the Balloon Regatta will be on standby on each Sunday throughout June, with an official weather call being made each week. The Regatta will proceed on the first date where the weather is suitable. The dates for the 2017 Regatta are June 4th, 11th, 18th or 25h.If the event cannot go ahead on any of these dates the orgaisers will seek to arrange a new date in the near future.
