Reception & Dinner - Grocers' Hall

Wednesday 27th June 2018

This event has passed

Home of the Grocers' Company since 1426, Grocers' Hall is a unique venue which brings together classic style and illustrious heritage. This elegant livery hall, tucked away opposite the Bank of England, provides a beautiful backdrop to the Master's first Black Tie dinner. The Master will welcome you to a sparkling reception, where he will be joined by his guest speaker the Rt Hon Dame Eleanor Laing PC, MP, Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons. We will make our way into the Livery Hall, with its magnificent Venetian chandeliers, where we will enjoy a fine dining three-course dinner with wine followed by the Loving Cup Ceremony, port and speeches. This event follows our welcome ceremony for new members, who may wish to continue their celebrations at this lovely venue.
