Sheep Drive

Sunday 29th September 2024

Start: 10am | Finish: 12.30pm

We have had a handful of places free up for this event and are available for booking. If you are interested in these places please book asap and we will get back to you if you are successful. 

Following the success of previous year’s Sheep Drives the Master is hopeful of securing spaces for six teams of ten Guild members each, to again drive sheep over Southwark Bridge. The Drive is open to all Freemen of the City of London, or guests accompanied by a Freeman, so offers an opportunity for non-Liverymen to take part in this fun charity event.

The donation amount has yet to be set for 2024 and was £65 in 2023.  All proceeds go to the Lord Mayor's Appeal and the Woolmens’ Charitable Trust.  There is a Livery Fair close to the Drive, entry is free and it showcases various Livery Companies and their wares, and the Fair and Drive are usually opened by the Lord Mayor and Sheriffs.  As in previous years the Guild will aim for slots between 11am and 12:30.

Please do apply early to express interest as we will need to book the correct number of slots in early May.

We have reserved an exclusive area of the nearby Boot and Flogger for lunch – see event 24. 

The lunch is open to all Guild members as well as those who have driven sheep.
