8 Sept : Election Court Banquet at Tallow Chandlers’ Hall

This event is now sold out, but a waiting list is in place. Please go to https://clerkentrepreneurs.wufoo.com/forms/kehiqvm1j785wl/

The postponed Election Court Banquet will take place at Tallow Chandlers’ Hall on Wednesday 8th September. There will be a Freedom Ceremony at 6.15pm (to which all are welcome), followed by an extended champagne and canapes reception in the Courtyard from 6.45pm.

Presentations will be made to the Trust beneficiaries and prizewinners at 7.30pm, and dinner will be served in the Livery Hall at 8pm. Alderman Sir Charles Bowman will speak. The food and music of the evening will have a distinctly Nordic theme as an homage to the Master’s Norwegian heritage.

Paid places for the original date are fully transferrable, though if you cannot make the new date, a full refund will be issued straight away (please contact the Clerk for an immediate refund).


Although the Election Court Banquet is presently sold out, it is probable that places will become available owing to the differing availability of Freemen and Guests. A waiting list for tickets is in operation, for which you should use the original sign up link https://clerkentrepreneurs.wufoo.com/forms/kehiqvm1j785wl/ Please note that, owing to the high demand for tickets, all unpaid places at 18th August will be released to the waiting list.
