Livery Committee History

The Livery Committee commenced activities in July 1864. It was originally created with the purpose of organising and overseeing the elections of the Lord Mayor and Sheriffs at Common Hall. 150 years later, the Committee still fulfils this role whilst becoming the forum of communication between the livery and the officers at Guildhall and Mansion House. We aim to consistently improve communication between the Corporation and the Livery. Furthermore, we are increasing the involvement of Liverymen in City affairs and continuing acting as a forum for discussion.

The Livery Committee is responsible for the organisation of the various training courses and City Briefings for Freemen, Liverymen, Wardens, and their Clerks.

The Livery Committee is facilitated by the City of London Corporation however it is not funded by the Corporation.It independently works by influence and consultation.
