Friday 22 July: Sophie Freedom of the Cityat Guidhall
On Friday afternoon, we were lucky to go and witness Sophie get her Freedom of the city, it was even more special as Laura was doing the ceremony. Loved all the pompous ceremonial levels, laura gave us lots of tales and histories on all the memorabilia in the court room too. We also surprised Sophie with buying her a sword, a loose knot and some bling. Especially as she now has the right to drive sheep across London Bridge and unsheath her sword in public. Afterward Laura showed us around Guidhall, it has been many years since I last visited it so it was nice to see it again and I don’t recall seeing the amazing tall Gog & Magog wicker figures before. Ending in the pub to celebrate.
