On Tuesday 24th April the Master, Wardens and Court of Assistants will host our Company's second "Masters and Clerks" luncheon, in the splendid surroundings of Apothecaries' Hall, to which we have invited the Masters and Clerks of other Livery Companies with whom we enjoy a particularly close relationship. We are fortunate that Sheriff Neil Redcliffe has agreed to be our guest speaker.
The lunch follows the regular Court meeting and all Liverymen are cordially invited to attend. It will be a splendid opportunity to meet and socialise with many of our fellow Livery Companies. Click here for details and booking.
Apothecaries Hall is a Grade I listed building at Black Friars Lane, London. It is the headquarters of the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries of London, one of the livery companies of the City of London. It is one of the largest livery companies (with over 1,600 members in 2012) and ranks 58th in their order of precedence. The building, originally part of the Dominican priory of Black Friars, was called Cobham House prior to its purchase by the society in 1632.
