About this Event
Don your evening dress (white tie) or black tie and join us to welcome the 7th Master and to celebrate the start of the new Company year!
You are warmly encouraged to witness the Installation Court from the comfort of your own homes, with your favourite food and drinks.
The installation of Mr Lars Andersen as the seventh Master Entrepreneur will, through the magic of television, take place simultaneously in the Drawing Room of Drapers’ Hall; a home cinema in Leicestershire; and a home office in Essex; and is followed by a blessing and reflection by the Hon. Chaplain at the church of St Lawrence Jewry!
Prior to the Installation Court, the Master, Mr Rick Lowe, will admit the final Freemen of his year of office at 6pm.
At 6.30pm, Freemen and guests are invited to witness Mr Lowe installing his successor as Master for the year ensuing.
… and Installation Dinner 2020
The Company of Entrepreneurs is delighted to call all Freemen and their guests to attend a virtual Installation Dinner, beginning with drinks at the conclusion of the Installation Court at about 6.50pm.
Dinner will be called at 7pm, and Freemen and guests are invited to prepare a two-course meal to enjoy with conversation across breakout room “tables”, interspersed with speeches and music.
The Company welcomes Alderman & Sheriff Professor Michael Mainelli to speak, and 2020 Beneficiary of the Trust, Fiona-Jane Weston to perform. The Master will address Freemen and guests after dinner. A further breakout session for a stirrup cup will be arranged following dinner.
