Installation Court, Choral Evensong and Dinner

It has become traditional for the Clockmakers’ Company to hold the ceremony of the Installation of the new Master and the Wardens at Painters’ Hall, 9 Little Trinity Lane, London EC4V 2AD in late January or early February. The ceremony is followed by a short procession down Trinity Lane to the church of St James’ Garlickhythe, where Evensong is conducted by the Master’s Chaplain, The Reverend Hugh Bearn, Chaplain to The Queen, and The Priest-in-charge, the Reverend Guy Treweek.  After the Service, the assembly, led by the Master and Court, processes back to Painters’ Hall for a reception and formal dinner in the Painters’ Livery Hall, where the Master’s chosen guest of honour proposes the toast of the new Master and makes an appropriate speech.
