The Civic Dinner is the principal event of the year, at which the Company celebrates its links with the Mayoralty and the City. The Company invites Civic dignitaries and their spouses to this dinner, including the Right Honourable The Lord Mayor of London and the Sheriffs. The band from the Royal Marines Association will provide music before, during and after the dinner, as well as entertaining the guests with their superb Post Horn Galop between two buglers!
Following a Champagne reception in the Court Room, a four-course dinner with fine wines, coffee and port will be served in the Hall. After dinner, you are welcome to join the Master and Wardens in a Stirrup Cup before setting off for home.
Due to the formal nature of the evening, Liverymen and guests should avoid leaving their seats during dinner and certainly remain seated until after the Loyal Toast. You are requested not to circulate during the dinner as this disrupts the formal nature of the occasion.
The closing date for applications is Friday, 17 November 2023, after which no refunds can be made. If the event is unable to go ahead, full refunds will be issued. Tickets cost £115 each (including VAT). Pour Mémoire cards will be issued for you and your guests.
