The present Hall, a Grade I Listed building, was built in 1672 after the Great Fire of London, but the Tallow Chandlers have been on this site since 1476. Having survived the Blitz, this is one of the few Livery Halls to remain unchanged since the 17th century. A talk on the history of the hall and the company will include a tour through the beautiful oak panelled Parlour, the elegant Hall and the Court Room, which is one of the original purpose-built Stuart court rooms of London and retains its 17th-century seating arrangements.
As a listed building, unfortunately Tallow Chandlers' Hall is not fully accessible. The building is on two floors with no lift.
This event has been organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
