Common Hall for the Election of Sheriffs  25 June

All Liverymen are invited to attend this extremely popular and traditional Livery event, and to exercise their right as a Liveryman to vote in the election (Common Hall is a term used to describe a gathering of Liverymen, and often associated with an election). The Election of two Sheriffs and other officers including Ale Connors and Bridge Trustees in Common Hall occurs each Midsummer Day. It is a considerable spectacle, and is an interesting and historic ceremony.  This year the election is contested with 4 candidates standing. There is an optional  lunch afterwards at Founders' Hall.
