Main Dining Room, Guildhall, Gresham Street, EC2Y 7HH
An admissions ceremony is one of the most important in any Livery Company calendar as it is here, we get the first opportunity to welcome our new Liverymen and Freemen. As is our custom, new Freemen will give a short narrative about themselves and their connection to the decorative arts.
This event is open to all Arts Scholars and once the formal part of the evening has been concluded there will be a reception culminating at 9.00 pm.
