Reception & Dinner - Carpenters' Hall
Tuesday 25 October 2016
Dress: Black Tie

The Master is arranging a special dinner in Carpenters' Hall to commemorate the 350th anniversary of the Great Fire of London. The Worshipful Company of Carpenters' original hall survived the great fire in 1666, only to be badly damaged by fire nearly 200 years later. The hall was soon rebuilt, only to be totally destroyed in May 1941 during the blitz. Rebuilt for a second time in the late 1950s, at least 18 different kinds of wood were used in the hall, to make it a showcase for the craft of carpentry. This event will start with a sparkling wine reception, followed by a traditional 3-course dinner. After the Loyal Toast and the Loving Cup Ceremony there will be a short period of musical entertainment, and the evening will conclude with short speeches by a guest speaker and the Master.
