50 500th Anniversary Service of the Innholders' Company at Southwark Cathedral

Saturday 29th November 2014

In celebration of the 500th anniversary of being granted a charter by Henry VIII, the Innholders' Company held a service at Southwark Cathedral, led by the Dean, the Company's Honorary Chaplain. In his sermon, the Bishop of Southwark, the Rt Rev Christopher Chessun, gave an amusing insight into the significance of Innholders in the area of Southwark over the centuries.

Following the service, the Clerk and I attended a reception in a large marquee in the grounds of the Cathedral.
