Master’s Installation 2019

On Wednesday 10th July 2019, Mr Christopher (Chris) Davey was installed as the 525th Master of the Vintners’ Company

The Master ‘badged’ his Wardens as follows:

  • Upper Warden: Ann Hill
  • Renter Warden: Edward Berry
  • Swan Warden: Anthony Fairbank

The events of the day were attended by some 150 Members, guests and staff of the Vintners’ Company.

Following the Ceremony of Installation in the Company’s Court Room, the newly installed Master, his Wardens and members of the Livery processed, in traditional form, to St James Garlickhythe Church for the annual Installation Church Service.  A buffet lunch was served back at Vintners’ Hall following the Church Service.
