Carpenters’ Hall - sold out
Visit | The Worshipful Company of Carpenters
Wednesday 1 March 2017 - 11:00 until 12:45
The Worshipful Company of Carpenters was formed when the City of London was built of timber, receiving its Royal Charter from Edward IV in 1477. Although the Carpenters’ Hall was undamaged by the Great Fire, carpenters suffered as many timber buildings were rebuilt in brick and stone. The Company’s links with the carpentry trade were weakened, but importance was increasingly placed on its ceremonial, business and charitable functions. Today the Company continues to support a broad range of charitable and educational functions, seeking to encourage the highest standards of woodworking craftsmanship. Join us for a tour led by the Beadle.
This event has been organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
