The Body of Yeoman Warders 33rd Annual Dinner

Wednesday 9th February 2022

HM Tower of London

If you had ever wondered where in the world you would have seen gathered in the same room the following assorted luminaries:- Joe Worsley, former England rugby international; Sheriff and Alderman Nicholas Lyons, Sheriff of the City of London and likely to be our next Lord Mayor; Professor Sir Jonathan Van-Tam, Deputy Chief Medical Officer, Covid Hero and Boston United fan; Jordan North, Radio 1 DJ and survivor of I’m a Celebrity ... and the Master of the Worshipful Company of Tobacco Pipe Makers and Tobacco Blenders, I can tell you that the answer is at the 33rd Annual Dinner of the Body of Yeoman Warders. I was honoured to have been invited by our Beadle, Mark Anderson, to attend this very special event. The evening started with champagne at the exclusive Benson’s Bar, and ended (far too late) with Gin, cheese and cigars at the Yeoman Warders’ bar – The Keys. In between, there was a fine dinner, plenty to drink, and a drill display from the RAF, with illuminated rifles. A great night was had by all, and, inevitably, a very sore head followed.
