Tour and Lunch at the Armourers Hall

27 June @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm


Tour and Lunch at the Armourers Hall

Take a tour of the home of The Armourers & Brasiers Company, founded in 1322, the guild overseeing the production of armour.

Tours start in the Gold Drawing Room where the Armourers Clerk gives a talk on the past and present activities of Livery Companies in general and the Armourers and Brasiers in particular as well as the history of armour and its role in medieval warfare. He also talks about the history of the present Hall, one of the few to have escaped the Blitz. Tours then visit the Library, the Court Room and the Livery Hall in turn and in each of which the Clerk provides guidance on artefacts of particular note (portraits – most notably perhaps the infamous Ann Vavasour and her chequered love-life – armour, clocks etc.) Questions are encouraged and photographs (for personal not professional use) allowed.

The tour will be followed by a sandwich lunch and wine in the Livery Hall.

Please download the flyer for more information.
