The Worshipful Company of Stationers and Newspaper Makers was formed in 1403 and received its Royal Charter in 1557. As one of the livery companies of the City of London, it regulated and defined proper conduct within the publishing industry. This guided tour of the Grade I-listed building incorporates the court room, dominated by an 18thcentury carved mantelpiece (possibly the work of Grinling Gibbons) and the livery hall, with its high ceilings and stained-glass windows. There is also the opportunity to visit the company archive, with papers dating back to the time of Shakespeare. The tour is followed by an organ recital in St Martin within Ludgate, the Stationers’ church.

This event has been organised by the London Fundraising Committee Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
