Centenary of Middlesex Guildhall

100th Anniversary of the Middlesex Guildhall - 19 December 2013

100th Anniversary of the Middlesex Guildhall

On 19 December 2013, the former Middlesex Guildhall celebrated the 100th anniversary of its official opening ceremony as the home of Middlesex County Council.

To mark this very special day, a member of one of London's historic guilds, Dunn's Bakery of the Worshipful Company of Bakers, prepared a cake featuring the iconic building and presented it to Lord Neuberger and Lady Hale, the President and Deputy President of the Supreme Court. They were joined for the occasion by Cllr Nana Asante, The Worshipful The Mayor of the London Borough of Harrow, representing the London Borough which most closely reflects the former county of Middlesex.

After the cake-cutting ceremony outside the Guildhall, the cake was offered to visitors to The Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court also celebrated the Guildhall's centenary by flying the Middlesex flag on the anniversary and temporarily reopening a special exhibition on the history of the Middlesex Guildhall.
