BASL and BLTG Dinners
BASL Annual Dinner
This year's BASL Dinner will be held in The Great Hall at the Merchant Adventurers' Hall on Thursday 20th September.
The Merchant Adventurers’ Hall is a Grade 1 listed building in the heart of historic York. This stunning timber framed building was constructed by a fraternity made up of York citizens to provide a base for charity, worship and business in the centre of the city of the city on the banks of the River Foss. The Great Hall is where the Medieval merchants first gathered to conduct their business and to socialise. The Undercroft used as an almshouse to help the sick and the poor until as late as 1900. The Chapel offering spiritual care to the merchants and the inmates of the almshouse.
The Merchant Adventurers’ Hall is home to many remarkable collections. Including silver, furniture and paintings, which provide a glimpse into the rich history of the Hall and the people associated with it. A portrait of a Queen sits next to one of a Lord Mayor whilst a Medieval ‘Evidence Chest’ is older than the Hall itself. The Hall also remains the everyday base for the 160 members of the Company of Merchant Adventurers of the City of York. A Merchant Adventurer was someone who risked or ‘adventured’ his or her own money in overseas trade bringing back goods and wealth to York. You are invited to discover the secrets of this unique guild hall and its 660 years of history.
There is a maximum of 120 places and tickets will available on a first come first served basis at £50 per head, including return transfer from the conference venue.
