CITYMATTERS.LONDON 14 July - 17 August 2021 | Page 17 LIVERY HALLS subscribe to our newsletter at Grocers’ Hall Location, location, location; you won’t find a more central venue on this list. Situated less than 100 yards from Bank station, the home of the Grocers’ Company boasts all modern conveniences and centuries of history within its walls. In-house AV includes a PA system and speakers, hand-held microphone, portable lectern microphone, lectern, front projector with 5ft screen and staging. And that’s before we get on to bespoke packages tailored to individual needs. These folks will be able to cater to just about any of your event needs. Two stunning reception rooms – supported by three break out rooms for those particularly busy events – can cater for up to 240 guests at a time, and are delightfully described by its operators as “a private oasis at the heart of one of the busiest cities in the world.” nPrinces Street EC2R 8AD The Barber Surgeons’ Hall is full of light and colour Barber-Surgeons’ Hall The London Wall is home to one of the City’s oldest Livery Companies. Dating back to 1441, Barber-Surgeons’ Hall has kept its elegance and charm, providing a stunning backdrop for plenty events over the years. From Livery dinners to extravagant Christmas parties, guests are sure to have a delightful experience at the hall. Sadly, the original Hall was destroyed in the Great Fire of London. The hall was then rebuilt and lost again, this time to air raids in 1940. The current Hall, opened in 1969 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, blends the historical connection with the comfort and practicality of a modern venue. The beautifully laid out red-brick is the third incarnation of the original Hall on this site, standing alongside the remains of the Roman-built London Wall. Offering natural light, Japanese oak panelling and Barbers’ Company treasures in all indoor spaces. The reception rooms are wonderfully laid out, leading to the focal point of the hall, the Great Hall. The Great Hall itself is flooded with natural light, bowed towards the west and dominated by a magnificent Holbein painting of Henry VIII uniting the Barbers’ and Surgeons’ Companies. It’s a magnificent room, made for extravagant events. nMonkwell Square EC2Y 5BL Fishmongers’ Hall Fittingly, the Fishmongers’ Hall is located right on the Thames, with the main rooms looking right out onto the river. The views over the water, paired with luxurious interiors and top-quality catering facilities, make this one of the top event locations in all of London – not just the City. The historical elements of the Fishmongers Hall cannot be overlooked either. First off, it is a Grade II*-listed building with a unique past. This elegant Greek Revival building dates from 1834 and was designed by architect Henry Roberts. And while the building as a whole has so many outstanding qualities, each room comes with its own character and unique kind of opulence. At every turn, you see yet another part of the hall’s valuable and diverse collection of artefacts and paintings. No stone is left unturned. nBlack Friars Lane EC4V 6ER Contact us for all your last minute printing orders letterpress lithographic digital SOCIAL ENTERPRISE PRINTING Ltd Traditional Printing with a Social Value 12 Pinchin St, London E1 1SA [email protected] 020 7488 9800 CITY MATTERS is looking for a FEATURES EDITOR to help deliver high quality, engaging lifestyle content across our print and digital platforms.
