Bishopsgate Ward Club

Founded in 1790 by Sir Richard Carr Glynn ‘to promote friendly intercourse, and discussion of topics of local and general interest’, the Bishopsgate Ward Club evolved as a forum for the merchants, traders and other interested parties of the Ward to express their views to the Aldermen and Common Councilmen, linking them to the governance of the City.  In modern times the Ward Club has become a social organisation promoting community service, good fellowship, and interest in the traditions and institutions of the City.

One of the most active of the City’s 25 Ward Clubs, the Bishopsgate Ward Club arranges a varied programme each year, including receptions, luncheons and insider tours. Formal functions such as this Civic Luncheon provide introductions to the Rt. Hon. The Lord Mayor, Aldermen, Sheriffs and Members of the Court of Common Council.
