Once you have your Freedom of the City of London, you are welcome to apply to become a Liveryman of the Company. You may find the 'Guidance Note for Prospective Liverymen' which we have prepared helpful.
The Livery combines membership and fellowship of a modern working Company alongside the historical workings and traditions of the City of London and taking the Livery offers the opportunity to become more involved with the activities of the Company. There are a number of social events each year exclusively for Liverymen including the Annual Livery Dinner, a Master’s Weekend away and more informal events such as Beating the Retreat, chocolate tastings and City visits. Being a Liveryman also gives you a greater connection with the civic City as you are able to take part in the elections of the Lord Mayor and the Sheriffs each year. Being a part of the Livery also opens the doors to other organisations such as other Livery Companies, the City Livery Club, the City Livery Yacht Club and the Corporation of London.
As you will see from the form, all applicants must be proposed and seconded by Liverymen of the Company.
On application, a one-off fee (livery fine) of £500 is payable and this includes a Livery Medal and your first Livery Dinner. Thereafter, Liverymen pay the usual annual subscription.
If you would like more information or have any queries on the application procedure, please contact the Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org
