Installation Luncheon Mansion House Friday 8th November

The Installation Luncheon is the last function that a Lord Mayor hosts at his home in Mansion House in the course of a mayoral year.

Attended by a somewhat select group of people seated at a single long table who are involved to some extent with the organisation or ceremonies of the Silent Ceremony or the mayoral changeover it was a privilege to be one of only four Masters present.  With many activities following during the afternoon it was also the only real opportunity to obtain sustenance for those with duties.

Speeches were delivered by both the outgoing Lord Mayor Roger Gifford and the Lord Mayor elect Fiona Woolf.

We emerged from Mansion House to very heavy rain - needing to transfer ourselves as best we could to Guildhall for the preparations for the Silent Ceremony.
