United Guilds Service & Lunch

This uplifting annual Service originated in 1943, when at a meeting of the Twelve Great Companies it was decided to hold a service to lift spirits in the City following the Blitz in 1940-41.

The Service has now become an annual event in the presence of Lord Mayor, the Sheriffs and Court of Aldermen.  It is one of the few occasions when the livery companies and Guilds of the City all gather together.
