Walbrook Ward Club Dinner

The Walbrook Ward Club Dinner was held at St Stephen Walbrook this evening. I was there at the invitation of the Club's President, Alderman John Garbutt, and we enjoyed a meal in the stunning surroundings of the church followed by an organ recital given by the excellent Joe Sentance.

The Ward of Walbrook is one of the smallest Wards in the City of London but is in an important position at the heart of the City encompassing the Mansion House, St Stephen’s Church, the Grocer’s Hall, the Old Stock Exchange Building at 125 Old Broad Street, and some of the banking community including The Bank of England.

The Ward Club of Walbrook is the second oldest in the City being founded on 4 December 1809 at the Bay Tree Tavern in St Swithin's Lane. It's purpose is to promote friendly and neighbourly exchange.
