Past Mistresses and Consorts 2015/16

of City Livery Companies

Welcome to the official home of The Firebirds, where you will find information of our past and future events and activities. Membership is open to Mistresses and Consorts of City Livery Companies during the tenure of Lord Mountevans as Lord Mayor of the City of London.

 

Our aim is to continue the fellowship experienced during our term and to support the City of London and its Lord Mayor.

We publish The Flame, a regular Newsletter full of all things livery and other news,  past and present.  Click here for our latest edition

And if you want the memory jog from that invaluable guide of names, faces and livery companies, click here for a link to the newly revitalised Picture Book.
