The Worshipful Company of Haberdashers is one of the most historical brotherhoods in England, with six and a half centuries of experience in transformation, progression and innovation. Originally formed for the purpose of the effective trading of haberdashery in medieval times, this fascinating organisation has since developed into a hands-on supporter of schools and academic development in England and Wales.
Haberdasher’s Hall in London perfectly encapsulates the spirit of this ever-changed but constantly brilliant team – as well as being an ideal and affordable place to host corporate events. This incredible piece of architecture immediately grabs the imagination. With history dating back to the first time it suffered damage in The Great Fire of London, to when a bomb hit it in World War Two, to when it was re-vamped and re-opened by Her Majesty the Queen in 2002. Since, it has flourished as a diverse and stylish events venue.
The Hall is built around a private courtyard which boasts a stunning contemporary water feature, and offers an impressive focal point from the enormous windows. This impressive room has been completely modernised and offers a blank canvas, clean cut, neutrally decorated space. The Orangery is also on the ground floor level and provides an ideal break out area to the Hall, where your guests can take refreshment among sculptures and citrus trees with access to the courtyard.
The Livery Hall has the advantage of being directly accessible to the light and airy Reception Gallery (cap. 150), which is at the top of an enchanting stone staircase. This is the largest room at Haberdashers’ Hall, and certainly has the biggest wow factor. With a jaw-dropping high vaulted ceiling, rustic oak panelled walls and beautiful views of the Courtyard, the Livery Hall can host 300 Guests and boasts a fantastic range of AV facilities and lighting systems – ideal for conferences.
Three highly versatile break-out rooms are also directly accessible from the Reception Gallery. The Court Room can accommodate 74 for private dining or a boardroom-style meeting, The Luncheon Room contains unusual and captivating decorative panelling from the original site of the medieval Haberdashers’ Hall and provides an inviting atmosphere for up to 30 guests. The Committee Room has doors leading into The Court Room, and is a contemporary space that makes an ideal private work station.
