The Bowden Charter Dinner

Guest Speaker: Sir Lloyd Dorfman CBE, Entrepreneur and Philanthropist

Commemorating our foundation as a Guild in 1975 with Reginald Bowden as our first Master and the granting of Royal Charter in 2010, the Bowden Charter Dinner is the opportunity for Marketors with their guests to celebrate both landmarks.

This year we are fortunate to be one of the very first Livery Companies to dine at the recently refurbished Butchers’ Hall.

The Hall has seen a total refurbishment lasting nearly five years and whilst retaining some of its original character, the hall has taken on a new lease of life.

In addition to this, we are fortunate to have Sir Lloyd Dorfman CBE, speaking to us.

We shall be enjoying fine dining and wines supplied by the hall's caterers, Life's Kitchen, with piano accompaniment throughout the evening.
