Once admitted to the Freedom of the Company new Members then apply to become Freemen of the City of London.
Once this has been obtained Freemen may become Liverymen of the Company which gives them additional privileges within the Company and allows them to possibly progress to the Court of Assistants and eventually to the role of Master of the Company should they so wish.
For further information about membership of the Loriners’ Company please contact the Clerk.
I was brought into the Worshipful Company of Loriners when I was 14, by my father, to whom I was bound as an apprentice. During my time as an apprentice, I attended several dinners and events over the years, including the Wormwood Scrubs Pony Centre anniversary party where Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal was in attendance. She asked us what we had been taught about lorinery, and strongly encouraged us to participate fully in the affairs of the company. This was, in particular, a unique and memorable experience and we all felt proud to represent the Company. Since then, I was made a Freeman of the City of London and then went onto become a Liveryman of the Company, and was “enclothed” at the Installation dinner at the start of 2016 at Vintner's Hall. Attending a Livery dinner is a wonderful, if slightly different experience, where Liverymen and guests come together to dine in a formal and social environment, to hear from the Master and the guest speaker and to partake in traditions such as the Loving cup.
My two brothers are also Apprentices and will, in due course, become Freemen and then Liverymen.OllieLiveryman
