Eddie Redmayne received his Freedom of the City today. (x)
The Freedom of the City is an honour bestowed by a municipality upon a valued member
of the community, or upon a visiting celebrity or dignitary. Arising from the medieval practice
of granting respected citizens freedom from serfdom, the tradition still lives on in countries
such as the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, Canada, South Africa and New Zealand ...
In modern society, the award of honorary freedom of the city or borough tends to be entirely
ceremonial, given by the local government in many towns and cities on those who have served
in some exceptional capacity, or upon any whom the city wishes to bestow an honour. (x)

Update February 2st, 2017 : 

Eddie's mum, dad and wife also attended the ceremony.

The honour was conferred at Guildhall, much to the pleasure of several staff,
and is awarded after the recipient is nominated by two members of
one of the City’s 110 liveries, or by being themselves a member. (x)
