65 The Worshipful Company of Fuellers' Royal Charter Banquet at Guildhall

Monday 16th March 2015

The presentation of a Royal Charter to a Livery Company is something to celebrate in style. For the Fuellers, this was the second opportunity as they had surrendered their first one in 1667! The presentation was made by HRH The Earl of Wessex KG GCVO during the course of the banquet with the Lord Mayor, the Lady Mayoress and the Sheriffs in attendance. His Royal Highness suggested that they should not lose this one! A programme of music was expertly played by The London Banqueting Ensemble whilst the guests enjoyed excellent food and wine. The Lord Mayor proposd the toast to the Company "May it flourish root and branch forever" to which the Master, Neville Chamberlain CBE responded.
