On the 5th September about 110 Liverymen and guests assembled at Butchers’ Hall for the last of the Company’s events before the installation of our next Master in October.

Although the Butchers are one of the oldest companies in the city they have only occupied the present site since the 1880s, having been moved from their previous site by the Metropolitan District Railway. The present hall was originally opened in 1960, and has just reopened after refurbishment; in fact we were the first company to dine there after reopening.
