Find out how the Company is run
The Company is made up of Liverymen, Honorary Freemen, Freemen, Scholars and Apprentices.
We are governed by the Court and this is chaired by the Master of the year. The Court comprises the Deputy Master, who is the immediate Past Master, the Senior and Junior Wardens (who are next in line to be Master), the Senior Past Master, other Past Masters, Assistants and Past Masters Emeritii. Past Masters Emeritii are those Past Masters who have chosen to retire from full participation in the Court. Assistants are those Liverymen who have been elected by the Court with the expectation that they will become Master. The Court is limited to 23 people.
Stewards also attend the Court but do not have voting rights. The Master and Wardens each appoint a Steward for their term in office. Stewards perform a hospitality role at official functions.
The day to day business of the Livery is managed by the Clerk.
The Livery also has an Honorary Chaplain, The Reverend Prebendary Jeremy Crossley, Rector of St Margaret Lothbury; an Honorary Solicitor, Roger Seaton; and an Honorary Director of Music, Dr Richard Townend.
