The Lord Mayor's Platinum Jubilee Big Curry Lunch

Thursday 7th April 2022

Start: 12 noon | Finish: 3.00pm


The Master will be supporting The Lord Mayor’s Platinum Jubilee Big Curry Lunch, which will be held at London’s Guildhall. The lunch supports members of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces and Veterans who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan through the three national Service Charities: ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, the Royal Navy and Royal Marines Charity, and the Royal Airforce Benevolent Fund. It focusses on individual pain management and on preparation and training for civilian employment. The lunch is hosted by the Lord Mayor, the Lady Mayoress, the Sheriffs and their consorts. The Master is a member of the organising committee 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.
