The Worshipful Company of Butchers and City Livery Events

WCB December Court Lunch 2019

Join us for the last Court and Livery Luncheon of 2019 on 6th December when we will welcome former England cricketer, Ronnie Irani to Butchers' Hall as our guest speaker. He’s even the son of a butcher!

Ronnie played for both Lancashire and Essex, as well as England, scoring over 20,000 runs and taking more than 650 wickets during his professional career.

Since retirement in 2007 he went full time into media, co-hosting the Sports Breakfast Show with Alan Brazil on talkSPORT Radio.

Ronnie is a butcher’s son and has real passion for the industry having worked for his Master Butcher Dad “Jimmy” since he was eight years old. Apparently, Ronnie is the best of his generation at boning out brisket!

As usual, you can expect a drinks reception, followed by a first-class three course lunch with wine, all within the surroundings of the new Butchers' Hall.
