Tour By: John Petrie MSc, Rouge Croix Pursuivant:
Arrival of the group at 6.15 for 6.30pm. I speak about the history of heraldry and the rôle of the Heralds, a little about the architecture of the building and how we run our practices,
and then spend a good hour in the Record Room showing a selection of records dating back to 1484. I normally give people a glass of wine and allow them to sit down
(their only opportunity) while I talk about the architecture of the building, and then give them another glass of wine (or two) with buffet supper of cold meats and fish, pasta and salad,
followed by cheese, fruit and a mini-sweet.
Q & A to follow then depart to hotels at 9PM.
