On 20 June 2017 the Hall filled with nominees for the Stationers' Innovation Excellence.  They spent the morning exhibiting their innovations in the Court Room and receiving their certificates of innovation from the Master.  At 1.00 pm they settled to lunch at the end of which the awards were made.  Liveryman Peter Day (seen below with Paul O'Driscoll of Parkside Flexibles and the Master) conducted
