Royal Charter - 19th October 2010

The greatest day in the Marketors' history, when HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, KG, KT presented us with our Royal Charter at Guildhall.

We started preparing almost a year ago, taking a chance on booking the Great Hall (shown above, although we had long tables, not round ones) before we knew we would be awarded the Charter.

A huge amount of work done by the committee, especially our Clerk, Adele Thorpe, resulted in a never-to-be-forgotten occasion. I cannot do justice here to it but the full story will be in the souvenir brochure and DVD to be sent to every Freeman and Liveryman of the Marketors. You might like to read the views of a guest, the Master Draper, on his blog:

Coverage also from the Livery Committee's website:
