Apothecaries’ Hall is the oldest extant livery hall in the City of London. The original building was destroyed by the Great Fire of London in 1666, but the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries of London rebuilt the current Grade I-listed hall on the same site in 1672, including an ‘elaboratory’ (laboratory) for the first large-scale manufacture of drugs. Although the hall underwent further redevelopment in the 1980s, its appearance has altered little over the past few hundred years. Today it houses many fine paintings and a range of pharmaceutical artefacts, including apothecary jars, from the period.

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