Description

Installation Court & Dinner 2017

By kind permission of the Worshipful Company of Painter-Stainers, the Guild of Entrepreneurs is privileged to call all Freemen and their guests to attend the Installation Ceremonial Court and Installation Dinner at Painters’ Hall on Thursday 23rd November 2017.

The Master, Kate Jolly, will admit the last new Freemen of her hugely successful year of office, before installing Lee Robertson as the fourth Master Entrepreneur.

The new Master will in turn invest his predecessor as Immediate Past Master, invest his Wardens and swear-in new Court Assistants, before leading the celebrations of the 3rd anniversary of the Guild's launch.

The Installation Dinner is the preeminent formal dining event of the Guild’s year, and this very special occasion will again be held in the imposing Painters’ Hall. A sumptuous dinner will be served, preceded by a sparkling reception.

The new Master will speak after dinner, and a stirrup cup will be served in the Court Rooms.


Painters’ Hall

The earliest reference to the property is dated 1375, citing a building between Hoggen Lane and Trinity Lane, and it was this property, probably a Medieval timber framed building that was acquired in 1504 for £30 by John Browne and conveyed to a number of his brother Paynter-Stayners in 1532, and was first described as “Paynters' Hall” in 1549.

The Painters’ Hall that stands today, however, was built in the 1960s, in place of previous Hall (destroyed by bombing in 1941). The Hall that stood before that had been consumed by the Great Fire of 1666. It is noteworthy that the Painter-Stainers’ coat of arms features a phoenix.
