The Guild of Young Freemen of the City of London is a volunteer organisation dedicated to engaging young people interested in the City of London's heritage and traditions.

Open to Freemen and prospective Freemen under 40, it attracts members involved in or enthusiastic about the City and Livery movement, regardless of their affiliation with a Livery Company.

With a membership exceeding 150 young professionals, the Guild fosters an appreciation for the City's historical institutions. Its goal is to connect members with Livery Companies, leading many of its over 800 past members to significant roles, including Livery Masters, Clerks, and even the Lord Mayor.

Membership of The Guild of Young Freemen is open to young people living and working in, or nearby to, the City of London who want to become more involved in the City, its traditions, and the Livery movement. Many of our members progress on to join a Livery Company during their time with the Guild, but it is not a formal requirement nor an expectation that you do so. Become a member
