The excellent meal and wines were accompanied by music from the Band of the Royal Yeomanry and a trumpet fanfare before each toast or speech The Lord Mayor gave an excellent amusing, but City focused speech. The response by the Master Grocer (which focused on cricket) was sadly lost to everyone in the audience!
A wonderful occasion. Many thanks to the Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress for inviting us.
