The Spectacle Makers' Society:
Friendship and fellowship for Freemen and Liverymen
Events are advertised in advance by broadcast email, on the website and in the Company journal “From the Master and Wardens”. Events are organised by members of the Society Committee, an independent group made up of 12 Liverymen and Freemen living in different areas and working in different fields but anyone can contribute ideas. Suggestions for visits and tours, particularly opportunities which would not be easily available to the general public, are always welcomed.
Events can only be booked by Freemen and Liverymen but friends, family
members and guests are made very welcome. It's an ideal way for potential new members to spend some time with us and try out how it feels to be a member of a friendly Livery Company. In each year we hope there will be enough variety to tempt people with very different ages and interests. At least one Society event per year will have a family theme when members can bring along children and grandchildren.
We aim to get out of London and into members' own communities. Costs vary from a nominal £5 to as much as £500 for a full weekend away.
