Bowyers' Summer Drinks - 7 Sep 2023

It was a very balmy – some might even say steamy – evening on Thursday, 7th September when a total of 33 Bowyers, including their family members and other guests, met at The Happenstance Bar & Restaurant in Paternoster Square from around 5-30pm for late summer drinks and buffet food in what was an inaugural "Informal Bowyers' Drinks" event. Indeed, it was very informal with a number of jackets and ties being removed early-on – to enable the assembled crowd to get on with the serious business of very convivial intermingling, hearty conversation, drinking and eating, in true Bowyers’ fashion. The chilled white wine was an especially Big Hit, given the heat and humidity. All feedback on the concept of the event has been extremely positive, given its informality, its relatively low cost and also the fact that, given that our Company historically has not had an event, post-summer recess, until the annual Agincourt Dinner in late October, an informal drinks-with-food evening such as last Thursday's was welcomed by all as a very enjoyable start to the new Livery Year. Accordingly, we shall be looking to repeat Late Summer Drinks in 2024 and in years to come.
