Visit | The Worshipful Company of Armourers & Brasiers
Monday 25 September 2017 - 11:00 until 12:30
The Armourers & Brasiers' Company is a Livery Company of the City of London. Founded in 1322 as the Guild of St George of the Armourers, it was awarded its first Royal Charter in 1453 from King Henry VI. In 1708, the Armourers joined with the Brasiers and received its current charter from Queen Anne. The Company has occupied its current site since 1346 and their hall escaped the Great Fire of 1666 and the Blitz. The present Armourers' Hall was built in 1839 and re-modelled in 1872. The Hall's striking interior features 16th and 17th century armour, weapons and paintings.
This event has been organised by the London Events Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
