Lord Mayor's Dinner to the Masters, Prime Wardens and Upper Bailiff of the Livery Companies

Thursday 15th March 2018

Mansion House

This was proving to be a very busy week but the energy levels will always rise for a white tie dinner at Mansion House. There were over 300 guests and the champagne flowed during the reception. Excellent food was accompanied by generous wines. During the meal, the Honourable Artillery Company Band competed with the buzz of conversation from the guests. There were speeches from the Lord Mayor, Charles Bowman, Master Mercer and Master Grocer. All three speeches were on message as far as the Pan Livery Collaboration project was concerned. After the dinner, there was a stirrup cup and I think I had a slight thick head in the morning.
