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 special edition - The Pandemic Time Capsule

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.

We have two 'live' events scheduled in July when we can hopefully cautiously welcome the end of a totally virtual existence.  Firstly a lunch on HQS Wellington organisd by the Phoenix PMA followed by an 'Open Garden' kindly hosted by Michael and Hilary Goodridge.

We hope to see many of you in person for the first time in far too long


Note: all events will follow government guidelines on the Coronavirus.  The website will be updated with latest information
