Ironmongers’ Hall is home of the Ironmongers’ Company and one of the Great Twelve Livery Companies of the
City of London. Ironmongers’ Hall is set in the heart of the City and combines a rich history and rare artefacts with elegant modern facilities.
The Company is tenth in order of precedence and is, therefore, one of the Great Twelve Livery Companies of the City of London. The earliest records suggest that the Ironmongers, then known as Ferroners, were an effective body in 1300 and received a charter of incorporation from Edward IV in 1463.
In 1457 the Company bought buildings in Fenchurch Street and converted them into a Hall, which was later enlarged. It was rebuilt in 1587 and escaped the Great Fire of 1666. A third Hall was built in 1745 on the same site. In the First World War, on 7th July 1917, during a raid by about twenty German aeroplanes, it was damaged by a bomb. After the war, the site was sold and the building demolished. The land in Shaftesbury Place, Aldersgate Street, on which the present Hall stands, was bought in 1922 and the new Tudor style Hall was opened on 17th June 1925.
Tickets to the Gala Dinner can be purchased at the time of registration. Places at the Gala Dinner are limited and will be sold on a first come first served basis.
