The Master will be supporting the 13th Lord Mayor’s Big Curry Lunch which will be held at London’s Guildhall. The Lunch supports members of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces and Veterans through the three national Service Charities: ABF The Soldiers’ Charity which the Guild’s Charity has supported in the past, the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, and the Royal Airforce Benevolent Fund. The Lunch is hosted by the Lord Mayor, the Lady Mayoress, the Sheriffs and their consorts. Our Master is an ardent supporter of ABF through the long distance walks that she undertakes and hopes that you will support this fantastic event which will be attended by a Royal Guest of Honour, serving officers, soldiers, veterans and beneficiaries of the charity.

Tickets include unlimited curry, beer and wine in the Great Hall. The Guild has a number of tickets which gives us access to the reception area of the Livery Hall and Crypts with a complimentary glass of champagne. If you are not successful in securing one of the champagne tickets you will be offered standard tickets (if still available), which does not include champagne or access to the reception area.

FIRST COME FIRST SERVED; applications made will be firm and non-refundable unless we can sell tickets on.
