Salters' Hall SOLD OUT
On 8 January 2019
11:00 until 13:00
The home of the Salters’ Company since 1976, this seven-storey, Grade II-listed, Brutalist building was refurbished in 2016 by DMFK Architects, who won a Company of Chartered Architects City of London Building of the Year Special Livery Award. This guided tour of the hall includes the new entrance pavilion, and the Salters’ exhibition and archive.
First licensed in 1394, the Salters’ Company has its origins in the salt trade of medieval London. Over the years, salt has frequently been used as currency in the absence of gold, and saltcellars became symbols of power and status. Dinner guests would be seated above or below the salt according to their social standing. The company’s collection includes numerous elaborate examples from the Middle Ages to today.
This event has been organised by the London Fundraising Committee Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
