Hackney Carriage Drivers' Spring Court Dinner

Thursday 8th March 2018

Carpenters' Hall

A fun event because the Hackney Carriage Drivers as a company are responsible for one of the most high profile livery events of the year. They organise the Magical Taxi Tour when over 100 cabs take sick and terminally ill children on a trip of a lifetime to Disneyland Paris. I had the privilege of sitting next to Past Master Phil Davis who has organised each Magical Mystery Tour.

It was my first visit to Carpenters' Hall and the place is very impressive. The toasts were entertaining, Master David Cannell was followed by the Recorder of London, Nicholas Hilliard QC, who gave us an insight into recent developments in the justice system and the work of the Sheriffs' & Recorder's Fund.
