This event has passed

For the highlight of the Guild's year, the Annual banquet will again be held in the magnificent medieval surroundings of the Guildhall, watched over by Gog and Magog. Members and their guests will be welcomed by the Master before enjoying a sparkling reception in the Old Library interrupted by the fanfare as Guild member Alderman Ian Luder, Lord Mayor Locum Tenens representing our Patron the Lord Mayor, accompanied by Mrs Lin Luder, the Sheriffs and their consorts arrive to join us. The formal announcement will then lead onto a sumptuous four-course dinner accompanied by excellent wines. The whole event will be one of colour and pageantry provided by the Pikemen and Musketeers from the Honourable Artillery Company, a wonderful selection of music, including the rousing Post Horn Galop, and finally high-profile guest-speakers, all combining to show off the City, Guildhall and the Guild at their very best.

The Master is delighted that one of his principal guests will be Lennox Cato, an antiques dealer specialising in furniture and decorative items from the Georgian and Regency periods and who has been an expert on the BBC's Antiques Roadshow since 2004. Due to his expertise and refined eye, he has built up a worldwide following of dealers, collectors, and leading decorators, as well as private buyers. Lennox is a member of the British Antique Dealers' Association; he has sat on its Council since 2004 representing Britain's 400 leading antique dealers and in 2008 he was Country Vice Chairman.
