Put your Alan Whickers on, don’t forget your tomfoolery and come on down to Stationers’ Hall on Tuesday, 26th February for a good old Moriarty and bubble bath. We’ll get around the Joanna for a knees-up and eat some scrumptious nosh! So, don your whistle and flute and bring along a Lady Godiva or two. All the bees and honey raised goes to the Stationers’ Foundation.
The term ‘Cockney’ originally applied to those born within earshot of the bells of St Mary-le-Bow church on Cheapside. Stationers’ Hall is just a few hundred yards from this church. Does this make us all honorary Cockneys?!
Come and join your Livery Committee to celebrate our Company’s London roots (wherever you are from!) with a fun-packed evening of dining, music, sketches and laughter celebrating Londonlife.
Diners are encouraged to dress up for the occasion to the theme of ‘Cockney London’. There will be prizes for the best dressed man and woman. Geezers are welcome to dress in a jacket and tie, if you prefer - but we do ask that your tie be London based (ie: a sports team, Livery or another London institution.)
The evening will begin with a drinks reception followed by a sumptuous three-course dinner. Due to a shortage in the River Thames, you may be pleased to hear that jellied eels are oﬀ the menu! However, the chef’s version of pie ‘n mash and spotted dick is eagerly anticipated.
