Make History With an Event at Stationers’ Hall and Garden

Just getting through 2020 is likely to land us in the history books. But if you really want to make history with a jaw-dropping post-pandemic event to remember, what better setting for it than a historic London venue that’s already seen its fair share of defining moments?!

Not only does Stationers’ Hall date back almost to the Great Fire of London, but it features some impressive decor, a versatile range of spaces and a tranquil secret garden!

Here are just a few reasons why Stationers’ Hall and Garden is the ideal venue for your event large or small.

A historical hall

This Grade I listed building was completed way back in 1673 – not long after the Great Fire of London destroyed the original. It’s one of just a few remaining ancient Livery Halls in the City of London. So, it has a long history of entertaining under its belt!

Whether you’re planning a conference, gala dinner or even a wedding, this is the perfect location to give your event that sense of grandeur you’ve been looking for. Which leads us onto...

Fairytale features

Stationers’ Hall is just as impressive on the inside as it is on the outside. We’re talking opulent stained glass windows, wood panelling, impressive chandeliers and historical flags. In short, this really is the stuff of fairytales!

Just think what a picture-perfect backdrop this venue would provide to any event, whether we’re talking serious seminars, delicious dinners or delightful dances!

Very versatile

The venue at Stationers’ Hall is made up of four inter-linking rooms along with a stunning garden, making this one of the most versatile venues in the city. Just think of all that breakout space!

Each room is bursting with character and charm, none more so than the Livery Hall, which is the largest of all the spaces. And did we mention that the Hall is licensed for wedding ceremonies and receptions too?!

Outdoor oasis

Stationers’ Hall’s peaceful private garden is the icing on the cake at this stunning venue. It would be a rare find anywhere, but especially so in the heart of London!

Not only is it teeming with seasonal plants and flowers, but it also features an impressive plane tree, large enough to offer shelter for up to 250 guests whatever the weather! As you can imagine, this secluded secret garden is a sought-after space for summer parties, team barbecues and drinks receptions alike.

A heart of green

Stationers’ Hall’s ‘heart of green’ doesn’t just refer to the gorgeous garden. It also refers to the venue’s sustainability policy! If you’re looking for an event space that can help you reach your sustainability goals while entertaining your guests, you’re in the right place.

The hall has partnered with Vick’s Wicks to recycle used candles, it’s replaced lighting in many areas with low energy LED alternatives, and 43% of the venue’s electricity comes from renewable sources. Sounds good, right?!

Magical menus

We can’t talk about Stationers’ Hall and Garden without paying at least a brief nod to the food. This venue is simply passionate about it!

When you hold an event here, you can choose from interactive food stalls, theatrical barbecues, scrumptious bowl food soirees and more. Either way, the chefs at Stationers’ Hall are all about capturing the imagination with delicious menus that excite the senses.

Lovely location

Located in the centre of the City of London, Stationers’ Hall’s location couldn’t get any more premium. It’s just a five-minute walk from St Paul’s Cathedral (and tube station), and just a 10-minute walk from Blackfriars and Bank!

So, whether your guests are keen for some sight-seeing beforehand or they simply want super easy transport links, Stationers’ Hall definitely ticks the boxes and more!

If Stationers’ Hall and Garden has got you keen to make history with your next event, what are you waiting for? Just get in touch with our venue experts and start drawing up your invite list!
