About the event
Reflections of The Lord Mayor is an annual event that gives us an opportunity to celebrate the vital role of the Lord Mayor of London. One of the oldest continuously elected civic offices in the world, the Lord Mayor plays a vital part in the life of the City and in supporting UK plc. The Lord Mayor’s Appeal Charity is delighted to continue to be partnered with the Reflections of the Lord Mayor event.
The dinner is a fantastic way to reflect on the successes of the Lord Mayor while in office, including the impact the mayoral role has on the charities supported in that year. All profits from the Reflections of the Lord Mayor event go to the charity(s) nominated by the Lord Mayor who speaks at the event.

Alderman the Lord Mountevans
Alderman The Lord Mountevans was Lord Mayor of the City of London from November 2015 to November 2016, the 688th person to hold that office in an unbroken sequence going back to 1189. Lord Mountevans will describe experiences from the exceptionally ‘high octane’ mayoral year, with some 100 days overseas visiting 25 countries on 5 continents (among them China, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, India and Brazil, but also Cuba – days after the Rolling Stones! – and representing the UK government at the Inauguration of the enlarged Panama Canal). He will also consider the City’s place in modern Britain and share his vision for the City post-Brexit where he will seek to highlight the opportunity.
