There is no laid down dress code: most will wear day dress (suits) although some may wear morning coats, and some ladies wear hats.
Lunch will be available afterwards at the Guildhall Club for liverymen and their guests at a cost of around £65 per person.
Twelve places have been pre-booked, which will be allocated on a first come first served basis - please email the Clerk to secure a place.
I will ask for more places if there is demand.
