Brigantes Winter Gathering, York
Friday 15th December 2017 – 4pm
Following the fully subscribed 2016 Winter Gathering at Chester Cathedral in December, arrangements are going into place for the 2017 Brigantes Winter Gathering to be held in York.
The format will be similar to that of the last two years – a late afternoon reception and dinner followed by the Christmas Concert which this year will be in the magnificent York Minster. York Station is 1hr 50m from London Kings Cross. Details will be circulated during the summer.
Over 1,200 Liverymen of the City of London are resident in the North of England. Forty one Companies have ten or more Liverymen in this area, to which should be added the many Liverymen throughout the UK and worldwide who regard the North of England as their spiritual home by adoption, birth right or interest.
The aim of Brigantes is to enable Liverymen of all Companies to meet together in the North, especially those less able to travel regularly to London, and so the Brigantes Breakfast was born – the name deriving from the Brigantes tribe which occupied a similar geographical area in pre-Roman times. All City of London Liverymen are welcome at Brigantes occasions.
For more information, or to forward a Liveryman’s email address for inclusion on the Brigantes mailing list, please contact one of us. Our email addresses are below.
