The Annual Banquet held at Painters' Hall this year.
The Company held its annual Banquet on Thursday 27 June 2019 at Painters Hall, with over 150 Liverymen, Freemen, Apprentices and guests attending.
Members and their guests were welcomed to the Banquet by the Master and his Consort before mingling with others during a short reception. The Guests then moved to the Banqueting Hall past a carpet guard of Cadets provided by Southwark Sea Cadets, TS Cossack.
As well as many personal guests of members present, we were delighted to be joined by Masters and Consorts from The Glass Sellers, The Apothecaries, The Air Pilots and The Guild of Entrepreneurs.
The principle guest for the evening was Sir Anthony Cleaver, former Chief executive and Chair of IBM UK, who suitably entertained all present with a speech and made a toast to the Company.
Good food, fine wine and good company was definitely the order of the day with all those present feeling suitably fed, watered and entertained by the end of an excellent evening.
