Work will begin on Stationers’ Hall in Ave Maria Lane, a Grade 1 listed building adjacent to St Paul’s Cathedral, in November. The Hall will reopen in early 2022.
It will bring modern-day facilities and better public access to the venue. They will provide a second entrance and a lift to allow access for all to the historic Livery Hall and to the other rooms, all of which will also have air-cooling.
This ambitious project has been called ‘Vision 350’ because 2023 marks the 350th anniversary of the rebuilding of Stationers’ Hall after the Great Fire of London.
Stationers’ Hall is a prestigious venue, which has hosted many dinners, conferences, weddings and other events for clients, as well as many high-profile occasions including those attended by the Queen, other members of the Royal Family, the Lord Mayor of London and Sir David Attenborough.
