When: 30th September 2020

Time: 18.00 – 19.30

Where: via Zoom, link will be sent to registered members

Book: click here to reserve your place


Normally, the start of Autumn would herald a flurry of activity in the Livery world.  Like so many things in this strange time, that is not going to happen this year.  Unfortunately, the uncertainty around social distancing requirements and what would be permissable under Government regulations, meant that we had to take the decision to cancel the Livery Lunch due to be held on 22nd September.  A similar fate has befallen the Wizardry in Wood Exhibition, initially planned for this October, but now postponed until 13-16th October 2021.  However, it is not all gloom and doom.  In place of the cancelled Livery Luncheon and the Company reception that would normally be held during Wizardry in Wood, members of the Court are working hard to inspire you with our wonderful craft of turning! Please join the Master, Wardens and your fellow members of the Turners Company for an online reception, via Zoom, on Wednesday 30th September from 6.00 until 7.30 pm when professional turners, who have received awards from the Company, will demonstrate the craft and reflect on how lockdown has challenged and inspired them; and one of our Liverymen will bring to you a famous ancestor – a turner and jeweller whose name you will definitely know. We hope this whets your appetite!!

The cost for attending the reception will be £10 per connected device, no matter how many of your family and friends gather around your screen.  You can invite other family and friends to join you from their own devices for an additional £10 per device.  Unfortunately, you will have to bring your own wine and canapés but at least that way you can ensure you get as much as you would like!  The Master hopes that as many of you as possible will join her at the reception which will be both informative and entertaining.

Please book yourselves a place via the members area
