Masters & Clerks’ Lunch 2024

12:30 Tuesday 30th April 2024.

The Master and Wardens and Court of Assistants invite you to join them for lunch in the splendid surroundings of Carpenters’ Hall on Throgmorton Avenue on Tuesday, 30th April at 1230hr for 1300hr.

Our guest speaker will be Larry Elliott, a Cambridge graduate and Economics Editor of The Guardian. He is a leading writer from the left on the international economy, and has a special interest in globalisation, trade and development, and the interface between economics and the environment. Larry helped created the progressive ‘Green New Deal’ published by the New Economics Foundation in 2008 to drive recovery from the financial crisis. He believes that the British people’s decision to vote for ‘Brexit’ reflects the EU’s failure to act on its promises to protect its member from the worst effects of globalisation. The son of a plumber, Larry believes strongly in vocational skills education.

We will be joined by Masters and Clerks from fifteen other Livery Companies, and welcoming several new Liverymen to be clothed that morning, with their partners, together with award winners from two of our military affiliations.

The cost of the reception and three-course luncheon with particularly fine wines and vintage port is £99 per head.

Dress is lounge suit or equivalent with Livery Badges.

Liverymen are welcome to bring guests to this event.

Company merchandise will be available to buy during the reception.

Please apply no later than 0900 on Wednesday, 24th April, to attend what promises to be a most excellent event.
