Sheriffs Breakfast Merchant Taylors Hall

Monday 28th September 2015

A magnificent lunch in Merchant Taylors’ Hall to welcome the new Sheriffs. One of my favourite halls complete with its own organ in the musicians’ gallery and a lovely garden where you could puff if you wished. We enjoyed grand wining and dining and very amusing speeches of welcome and thanks. The excellent vote of thanks to the outgoing sheriffs was given by Nicolas Hilliard, Recorder of London who will be speaking at our January dinner. It seems such a short time since I was sitting in the same hall greeting the now departing sheriffs. How short a year is.
