Part of Becket Pageant for London - an unforgettable day of fun, culture and celebration in the ancient heart of the city.
Inspired by the guildsmen who staged the original pageant of 1519, and Becket’s origins as the son of a City merchant, Guildhall Yard will be styled as an immersive 16th century experience with period entertainers and a vibrant Livery Crafts Fair. Visitors will be invited to imagine themselves as Tudor Londoners, learn about a pivotal period in British history, sample a specially brewed Becket Beer! - and watch skilled livery craft displays in an open air, Covid-secure environment.
Up to eighteen Livery Companies will showcase the important contribution of the guilds past and present to the success of the City, whilst providing practical demonstrations of their individual trades, including the evolution from old technologies to new.
There will be an opportunity to purchase hand crafted merchandise direct from the stall-holders.
The fair will also highlight the on-going educational aspects of Livery Companies’ work, particularly their support of modern apprenticeships and alternative career pathways.
