The Livery organises four formal Dinners a year culminating in the Grand Banquet at the Mansion House in January.

    One of the advantages of us not having our own Hall is that we can enjoy the different delights of many of the Liveries that do have their own Halls.

    The two trade sectors we support – Footwear and The Built Environment – hold their own Dinners every year and from time to time organise Regional events, in the North and the South West of the UK.

    Each year, the Warden to the Trade will organise an interesting visit to a setting specific to either the Footwear or Built Environment industries.

    In the autumn we have a Common Meal –  an evening to which all members are invited.  This ancient tradition of holding an open meeting over dinner gives any member present an opportunity to grill the Master, Wardens and Clerk on Company policy and practice and to make suggestions for improvement in both areas.

    Liverymen are also invited to our Annual Ascension Day Service in our own Church, St Margaret Pattens and to the Election of Sheriffs and the Lord Mayor in the wonderful and ancient ceremonies in the Guildhall.

    Over and above this, we organise a number of informal events, which can range from visits to Gardens, historical places of interest, wine or spirit tastings, Headley Court, the theatre and many others. This normally takes the form of groups of 25 or so Liverymen and is growing in popularity.

    Should any members wish to get involved in organising and running events they would be most welcome to contact the the Clerk or chair of the events committee.
