Tuesday 2nd March
Up at 5 a.m. to be at Mansion House for breakfast by 7.45 with the Lord Mayor, Sir Nicholas Kenyon (MD of the Barbican), our Clerk, Adele Thorpe, several other livery companies and guests, totalling about 40. The purpose was for the Barbican team to brief us on a new initiative based on creative learning and to seek our financial support. Interestingly, attendance at arts events across the country is up since the start of the economic crisis ("Man shall not live by bread alone"). We shall put that on the agenda for the next meeting of the Marketors' Trust.
