2019 City & Livery Familiarisation Day

Following the success of the pilot event held in 2018, we will be holding another City & Livery Familiarisation Day on the17th June which will be introduced by Alderman William Russell – (next Lord Mayor if elected). The Master and Deputy Master will introduce our own livery initiatives and our Beadle, Ted Prior will introduce some of the ceremonial practices, before our Blue Badge City Guides take us on a walking tour highlighting many of the City’s interesting features.

The Clerk advises that the day will be a full one and for those intending to complete the walking tour to wear walking shoes.
