Masters and Clerks Dinner, Plaisterers' Hall

Tuesday 12th January 2016

The first event after the Christmas break was the Masters and Clerks dinner hosted by the Plaisterers Company at their Livery Hall. Plaisterers Hall is one of the largest halls in the city and easily sits 200. We were in fact rather more and the hall looked spectacular with every sprig full and the chandeliers gleaming down on the company silver. More than 50 Livery Companies were represented and it was a good opportunity to catch up with friends after Christmas. The food and wine were excellent and the Master’s speech had a pantomime theme, he having been asked by the clerk to introduce more gravitas and less levity into his speeches. From the choruses of ‘Oh no he isn’t’ and ‘look behind you’ the audience clearly loved it all. More levity I say.
