The Worshipful Company of Butchers and City Livery Events

WCB October Court Dinner 2022

The Master, Past Master Andrew Parker, invites you to attend the first Court and Livery event of his year on Friday 7th October 2022. Liverymen and guests are warmly invited to join us for an elegant Black Tie evening at our Hall.

Mr Deputy Chris Hayward, CC

The Master looks forward to welcoming our guest of honour, Mr Deputy Christopher Hayward CC, elected Common Councillor of the City of London, for Broad Street Ward.

Chris followed a career in the construction, aviation infrastructure and global events sectors and was a former Deputy Leader of Hertfordshire and Dorset County Councils. Elected to Broad Street Ward in 2013, he has served as Sheriff of the City of London and is currently Chairman of the Policy and Resources Committee.

Chris is an Honorary Bencher of Inner Temple and Chairman of the Guild of the Royal Hospital of St Bartholomew.

The format of this very special evening will replicate a Court lunch, with all that you would normally expect. New Liverymen will be admitted, the meal will be fabulous, the guest speaker will be entertaining and the drinks will flow whilst we enjoy good company with our friends, colleagues and family.

A sparkling wine reception will be served at 6.30pm, followed by a three course meal served in the Great Hall at 7pm.

The 200 club draw and the champagne raffle will also take place during the event, with after dinner drinks available at our renowned Stirrup Cup which will bring this illustrious evening to a close.

Wear your finest and we'll see you there!

This event is fully booked. Please contact the office if you wish your name to be added to a waiting list for a place.

The original invitation to book for this event had stated that the Guest Speaker would be the Argentinian Ambassador, Javier Figueroa. Unfortunately, due to medical reasons, the Ambassador is no longer able to attend but we look forward to welcoming him at the 4th November Court Lunch.
