THE Mayor of London hosts the first-ever Londonwide Citizenship ceremony at City Hall tomorrow (Friday).

Boris Johnson has given a broad appeal to the ceremony in which immigrants who have been granted citizenship become British citizens. He has selected one 'new citizen' from each of the 33 London boroughs.

Both the Mayor and the chair of the London Assembly, Jennette Arnold, present certificates to welcome the 33 at the ceremony starting at 10.30am.

Citizenship ceremonies are now held in prestigious venues, with Tower Hamlets borough welcoming its new citizens in the Tower of London, opposite City Hall.
