Informal drinks evening at the invitation of the Guild of Entrepreneurs
City of London Club, 19 Old Broad Street, London, EC2N 1DS
The Guild of Entrepreneurs are in a similar position to the Guild of Nurses, in that they are aiming for Livery status, having been given approval to form a new Guild by the Court of Alderman in 2014.
The evening is hosted by their Master who attended our recent Church Service and Freedom Ceremony and is being held in the bar of the City of London Club on Wednesday 13th November from 6pm-8pm. It will be a great evening for our Freemen and members to enjoy some inter-Guild fellowship. We don’t have to book onto this event, please just turn up if you are able and pay for your own drinks on the evening. The dress code is smart casual, no jeans or trainers.
