Saturday's procession featured representatives of some of the organisations whose history overlaps with The Old Vic, including Morley College, Sadler's Wells and the English National Opera.

The procession – led by a marching band from Kansas Smitty's – began at the Laurence Olivier statue outside the National Theatre and made its way through the streets of Waterloo to The Old Vic, where a street party was held in Webber Street.
