Fishmongers' Company 750 Year Civic Reception

The Fishmongers’ Company hosted a 750th year Civic Reception at their quite magnificent Hall located alongside the River Thames on a very warm summer’s evening.

Formed in 1272 they are one of the Twelve Great Livery Companies of the City of London.

They play a leading role in upholding the standards in the trading of fish and shellfish as well as making a significant contribution to the UK fishing sector and other non-fishery areas through their Philanthropy and Grants projects. We heard about their various significant projects in an address given by their Prime Warden Alderman Sir Alan Yarrow (former Lord Mayor of London 2014-15) and some video clips by recipients of their support.

Her Royal Highness, Princess Anne (Prime Warden 2017-18) attended to Reception as did The Lord Mayor amongst others.

It was a lovely and interesting evening, an opportunity to meet others, a privilege to see their Hall and to enjoy some delicious canapés.
