Details

James had an entrepreneurial career and, after selling his business, accepted a fascinating ‘retirement’ job with one of the most lively and progressive London Livery Companies. Having been apprenticed to the Skinners Livery Company in 1963, and subsequently becoming a Liveryman, he enjoyed ‘ten fulfilling years’ with the Tallow Candlers Livery Company, before finally retiring in 2009.

James’ talk derives from his interest in the history of the ancient City Guilds generally, which were really cartels protecting and projecting the trade of the artisans and craftsmen who formed the basis of wealth creation through the middle ages – on to the Livery Companies that underpin the City of London Corporation today.
