The City of London has a number of grand Livery Halls dotted around the Square Mile, and three of them are going to be open for lunches this summer.
The Livery Halls are not usually generally open to the public, unless you’re invited in for an event or Open House Weekend, so this is a good chance to see inside venues normally closed to those who are not Freemen of the Worshipful Companies.
A drinks reception commences at 12:30pm and lunch is served promptly at 1pm.
Tickets for each lunch are priced at £60 per person which includes the reception, a three-course lunch and coffee – you can make bookings via e-mail [email protected] and full details are here. A wine table will be available for guests to purchase wines on the day.
Note there’s a dress code, so business attire is expected.

The lunch provider is a catering firm, Life’s Kitchen who usually provide Carvery Lunches in Butchers Hall, although those are on hold at the moment.
This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
