Arbitrators Charter


As we have learnt in the Marketors, receiving the Royal Charter is a significant stage in the life of a Livery Company, which is why I was honoured to be invited to the Worshipful Company of Arbitrators banquet at which Prince Michael of Kent, on behalf of the Queen, presented the Company with its Royal Charter. A suitably magnificent event, it took place in the delightful Plaisterers Hall which is of course our home. The Arbitrators are ninety-third in the list of Livery Companies in the City of London (to our ninetieth) having been formed in 1981 although, as with Marketing, the skill has been practised since ancient times. 

As befits a Royal Charter event the guest list was a veritable who's who of City dignitaries, led of course by the Lord Mayor, Alderman David Wootton and closely followed by the President of the Supreme Court Lord Phillips. However thanks must go to the Master of the Arbitrators and his team for creating such an impressing and musical evening.
