Blog of the Master of the Worshipful Company of Marketors, a City of London Livery Company

Welcome to the Master Marketor’s Blog

If you’re new to this blog….

This blog records the participation of the Master in numerous activities across the City and elsewhere complementing the many events held within our own Company.

Whilst it is mainly written to inform members of the Worshipful Company of Marketors it will also be found of interest to anyone wishing to know more about the typical week to week engagements of a Master of a City of London livery company during a very full and memorable year of office.

The Livery operates as a traditional part of the City of London “tapestry” supporting the Mayoralty and many charitable causes. As well as receiving many invitations the Master also has to manage the Company and its programme on a day to day basis in close liaison with the Clerk and other members of the Company.

Comments are always welcome – they are moderated by Web Master Alan Dodds

Master’s Blog – 26th March

One of the things I’ve enjoyed most throughout my working life has been the opportunity to enter, however briefly, other people’s worlds. I’ve watched dancers being put through their paces in a rackety Bollywood Film Studio by a harridan with a megaphone and been invited to see already married teenage women in Dubai going back to school to be educated in an all-female environment.  As Master I’m enjoying similarly privileged glimpses into the life of the City and its various institutions. I was invited to the Scriveners’ Company’s annual presentation of quill pens to the Sheriffs – the same quill
