Reception & Dinner - Fishmongers' Hall
Thursday 5 March 2015
Dress: Black Tie

For his final dinner the Master has chosen Fishmongers' Hall, with its magnificent riverside position and architecture. The Worshipful Company of Fishmongers ranks fourth in order of precedence of the Livery Companies, making it one of the Great Twelve City Livery Companies. The hall contains many treasures, including Pietro Annigoni's famous portrait of Her Majesty The Queen, and the dagger with which Fishmonger Sir William Walworth, when Lord Mayor of the City in 1381, ended the Peasants' Revolt by stabbing the rebel, Wat Tyler, to death in the presence of King Richard II. The evening comprises a traditional Livery style reception in the Court Room and the Court Drawing Room and dinner in the Banqueting Hall, one of the most impressive in the City. There will be some musical entertainment and a specially selected speaker to round off the Master's year in office.
