MTBA summer ball

Last night we had our Master Tailors’ Benevolent Association summer ball at our hall in Threadneedle street, The hall itself was build in 1347 but was restored internally in 1666 after having been damaged by the Great Fire of London and again in 1940 after being hit by a number of bombs but the foundations were never affected. Twice a year we meet here to dine, In winter is a formal sit down meal with a speaker and is full dinner dress which is mainly held in our hall, Where as the summer ball is much more informal, the dress code is much more relaxed with a barbicue and live band situated in our garden.
