City Livery Club Installation Dinner Haberdashers' Hall Thursday 31st October

The City Livery Club was founded in June 1914 to provide a home for liverymen of the City of London. It has since expanded its membership to include Freemen of Livery Companies, members of the Guild of , Freemen, Society of Young Freemen, Ward Clubs, City of London branch members of the Royal Society of St George and the City of London branch of the IoD.

The new President Alderman Neil Redcliffe installed at the AGM immediately before the dinner will therefore preside over the Club's Centennial Year.

The Club has premises overlooking the Thames (aka The Little Ship Club) which provides luncheon and club facilities for members and guests, with a Club Room and Bar.  The Club offers reciprocal arrangements with leading clubs in the UK - including the Farmers Club in Whitehall.   It offers a varied programme of social activities which complement and supplement those offered by one's own Livery Company or Ward Club.

The dinner was very pleasant socially - meeting with a number of friends from across the City and Livery, and also some fellow Marketors - including Valerie and Norman Boakes, both Past Presidents of the City Livery Club, and Trevor Brignall, Hon Secretary of the City Livery Club.

The motto of the City Livery Club is "Uniting the livery, promoting fellowship" and it seems to do that extremely well.  For further information on the City Livery Club visit the website on or contact the clerk by email
