tonight I am attending the annual NEODA dinner at the Tallow Chandlers Hall in London.

NEODA (National Edible Oils Distributors Association) Is made up of oil companies and suppliers to the fish and chip industry. The also run National Fish and Chip Day which takes place on the first Friday of June every year.

The Company of Tallow Chandlers, the owners of the hall, were the only source of light at night going back before electricity so they amassed a huge wealth which afforded them such a prestigious base in London which is located across from Cannon Street Station.
