And now for something slightly different Medieval Banquet Saturday 2nd November

Writing about Guildhall put me in mind of a character part I have played very recently - Catherine Howard. Or that at least was the name given to the costume.    We were celebrating my brother in law's 70th birthday in St Katherines Dock where the old Ivory House provides a splendid Medieval Banquet evening much to be recommended for anyone wanting a new experience.
Of course one should reflect that many livery companies date back well before Catherine Howard and Henry VIII.
