During the week of the Lord Mayor’s Show it was our turn to host the Hamburger Morgensprache back in London. We were delighted to be able to host them at two events. The first event was a Freedom Ceremony on Friday, 13 November:
As ever, Murray Craig, Clerk of the Chamberlain’s Court, City of London, provided one of his delightfully witty, historical, and theatrical presentations, with a traditional round of Madeira to toast the “Youngest Freemen”. Perhaps the most touching thing the City of London did was to dig out from the archives this parchment from 1342!
The following morning of the show, 14 November, the Worshipful Company of World Traders hosted the team for a breakfast at the Capital Club, before everyone headed off to join their floats, have a wonderful Show, and get drenched!
