The Stationers' Company during the Covid-19 Crisis
In the light of government guidelines on the measures required to deal with the threat of Covid-19, Stationers' Hall will be closed until the end of May 2020 at the earliest and all Company events scheduled to take place in this period will be cancelled.
Anyone who has paid for tickets to those events which have been cancelled will be fully refunded, although the Master has suggested that members might wish to consider donating the cost of these tickets to the Stationers' Hall Charity or to the Stationers' Foundation. Please email the Deputy Clerk, if you wish to do this.
A number of the scheduled committee and Court meetings will be conducted remotely. Details of how these meetings will work will be given to those involved in advance of the meetings.
Because of the impossibility of planning for certain events that are scheduled to take place after the end of May, we have had to cancel some of these as well. To date, the other events that we have had to cancel are as follows.

Of course this is a big disappointment to all of us; however, with the perspective of our six hundred year history, in which Stationers have coped with fire, war and indeed plague, we know that the Company will bounce back and the crisis will become a distant memory.
We are determined to keep in close touch with our members, whose welfare is of even greater concern to us in these difficult times. We hope that we will all be spared the virus and we are conscious that many of us may face some weeks of self-isolation. We can all help one another with this and, of course, our Honorary Almoner is available to assist. His details can be found on the Honorary Appointments page of the website .
We will keep you informed of further developments as they happen; so please check this page regularly for updates.
