City Briefings are held three or four times a year, run by the Livery Committee of the City of London. The briefings are aimed particularly at new Liverymen and Freemen; partners are also welcome, as are Court Assistants and Liverymen of longer standing. Those who have not previously been to a Briefing are also encouraged to attend. They give a short introduction to the work of the Corporation of the City of London, especially the relationship with the livery companies. The briefings are held in the Livery Hall, 71 Basinghall Street, Guildhall, London EC2V 5DH commencing at 5pm. There is an opportunity to ask questions of the speakers and the Briefing is followed by a light finger buffet, which provides the chance to mix with other Liverymen and Freemen.
