Pitcher time!

Congratulations to Liverymen, Darran Yates, who was highly commended by the judges for his entry in the Farmers & Fletchers design a gin cocktail competition. Maybe we should add his creation to the menu for a future event!

We wonder if any budding bakers among you can take it a step further and claim the crown in the Farmers & Fletchers’ design a Signature Pie competition? 

Picture time!

Mayoral events

The first big event of the year is the Gala Concert by the LSO at St Paul’s Cathedral on Tuesday 14 March. On 3 May, the Mayor will be hosting an Ascot Race Day; expect an afternoon of sumptuous food and drink, thrilling races and fabulous hats!
