After a two-year gap, a number of Paviors enjoyed getting together again for a traditional Christmas celebration.

Apothecaries’ Hall was the venue on Monday 13 December and liverymen and their spouses gathered to chat over a glass of champagne. The Hall is a rather special venue, being the oldest livery hall in the City of London and the only one to have survived the Great Fire. ​

Participants sat down in the Great Hall to enjoy a meal of traditional Christmas fayre. With fewer numbers attending than at past events, seating was more ‘spacious’ and allowed some social-distancing. The food was very good and diners were entertained by soprano Olivia Grace Piper. Everyone then joined in with some traditional carols.

The event provided a great opportunity to meet up with fellow Paviors who had not had the opportunity to get together for a considerable time. A very successful and enjoyable evening resulted. Many thanks are due to the organizers for the meticulous arrangements.

We wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New Year! ​
