In addition to the royal entries (Elvetham?), something from The Faerie Queene IV.xi might work (the procession of rivers for the marriage between the Medway and the Thames).

Not without a little self-interest, I'd recommend--although it will  
need some cutting, Bernard Garter's effort for Elizabeth's entry to  
Norwich in 1578 [?]. Lots of bits to choose from, most of which are in  
the REED Norfolk edited by Joanne Dutka. Sounds like fun: send pictures.
Cheers, Terry Wade
