Wed 20 Sept:
Scriveners' Lecture by the Heraldry Society at the Society of Antiquaries, Burlington House, Piccadilly, 6.30pm. Richard Goddard will speak on the Development of Livery Company Heraldry since 1960. No fewer than 55 livery companies have obtained Grants of Arms, Supporters or Badges since 1960 and this lecture hopes to illuminate some of the more fascinating aspects of this remarkable growth in heraldic display. Richard Goddard's latest book on Livery Company Heraldry is being published in July and it features the Scriveners' badge granted by the College of Arms in 1976, marking the sexcentenary of the Company. The Scriveners Company supports this Heraldry Society Lecture annually. Admission free.
