Dinner Painter Stainers Hall

Tuesday 15th September 2015

To the Painter Stainers Hall for their Court Dinner. It is a very special Hall with many fond memories for us since we met there for many years until we finally decided to go Hall-less. The dining room walls are covered with beautiful and interesting paintings and I can remember a number of Burns Night suppers there where we toasted the haggis and danced Strip the Willow and the Dashing White Sargeant to the strains of a Scottish band. During his hilarious speech, the Master decided to refer to all the visiting Masters as characters in a James Bond movie. Sitting next to me was the Master Musician, Kathleen Duncan who was re-named Miss Moneypenny while I for some inexplicable reason was referred to as Mr Big!... Too many dinners obviously. A very enjoyable evening
