STATIONERS’ HALL WILL OPEN FOR THE LORD MAYOR’S SHOW DAY, AN INFORMAL AND FRIENDLY DAY FOR ALL THE FAMILY
Members, their families and other Livery Companies are invited to a two-course buffet lunch after what has been termed: “the greatest free show on earth”. This gives the perfect opportunity for all family members of those connected with Livery Companies, especially children and grandchildren, to experience Stationers’ Hall before and after the fabulous display of the Lord Mayor’s procession - bands, horsemen, coaches, soldiers and many exciting floats and entertainers.
The Hall will be open from 10.15 am to 11.00 am for coffee, tea and biscuits and then will close until 12.30 pm. Ludgate Hill and the vicinity of St Paul’s Cathedral offers a good standing view of the proces-sion, which starts to pass by at about 11.15 am. At 12.15 pm the Lord Mayor’s coach pauses at St Paul’s for a blessing on the steps of the Cathedral, after which the Lord Mayor moves down Ludgate Hill on his way to the Royal Courts in the Strand. At 12.30 pm a two-course hot buffet lunch will be served in the Hall, together with a glass of wine (soft drinks for children). A voucher will be issued to those who have bought tickets on entering Stationers’ Hall for lunch. (It is important that you collect your vouchers on arrival, as you will need to show them when you receive your lunch).
Entertainment will be provided in the form of a magician and a fabulous raffle.
Please book your tickets online before Monday, 5 November 2018, after which time no refunds will be given. Places in the Hall are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment. We will con-firm your booking by email.
