This event has passed

The Master will host his third Black Tie dinner at the historic Skinners' Hall. Dating back to 1670 the Hall is oak panelled and includes the Minstrels' Gallery beneath which the Company's banners are hung during festive occasions. Amongst the remarkable features of the Great Hall is an exquisite silver display case, coats of arms and large panels painted by Sir Frank William Brangwyn. In these lovely surroundings the Master is delighted to welcome Colonel Jane Davis OBE, QVRM, TD, DL, RGN as his guest speaker. Col Davis is a fellow Deputy Lieutenant and is newly appointed as Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Greater London. She has been a nurse for over 40 years and served in the Army Reserve for 36 years, retiring in 2015 as the Deputy Commander at 2nd Medical Brigade having served in Afghanistan in 2011. Col Davis is a Colonel Commandant Queen Alexandra's Royal Army Nursing Corps (QARANC), maintaining a special relationship with the Colonel-In-Chief, Her Royal Highness the Countess of Wessex. 
After a sparkling reception we will be served a fine dining three-course meal with wine; we can also enjoy music from the students of the Guildhall School of Music and Drama as they play in the Minstrel's Gallery. This event follows our welcome ceremony for new members, who may wish to continue their celebrations by attending this lovely dinner.
