Harvest Service and Lunch

One of the most popular events in the the Guild's calendar - the Harvest Service and Lunch.

The Harvest Service and Lunch returned to St Bride’s Church in 2021 where a moving service of thanksgiving will take place, featuring hymns from the much-loved choir.

This was followed by a fantastic three-course lunch at Pewterers' Hall - a new venue for 2021 - where guests caught up with friends, met new ones and networked with members from across the UK.

The Guild is extremely grateful to lead sponsor NFU Mutual for its continued support of this event.

The 2022 event will take place on 13 October. Tickets will be released in due course
