VISION 350 UPDATE

Creating a Hall fit for future generations of Stationers - The Hall is our home and most significant asset, it is the third oldest Hall in the City and the birthplace of copyright and of the spread of literacy and democracy throughout the UK; all still key values and unique to our history.


Built-in the 17th century, Stationers' Hall now needs modernising to make it a fit and suitable home for both Stationers' and for our guests, who have needs more in keeping with the 21st century.  'Vision 350' is a project designed to make our Hall more accessible to everyone and sustainable as we move towards celebrating its 350th anniversary in 2023.  

This project includes:

  • creation of second reception in the garden under the anteroom
  • installation of a lift to serve all floors
  • installation of air cooling in all public rooms
  • for additional meeting rooms
  • a new kitchen and insulation and new electricals

Please follow our progress and check back here for more updates!!

30 MARCH 2022

The beautiful garden at Stationers' Hall has been rather ravaged by the building works.  It has been dug up by archaeologists, used as a storage depot by the Company and the builders, and generally trampled as huge bits of machinery and supplies have been moved through it.  But its rescue has started!

Members will be pleased to note that progress continues to be made apace on the Hall redevelopment.  The first fix wiring is going in, the third floor ceiling is up (see picture) and the opening between the Hall and the link building is finished. The block work for the lift shaft is also done.

It is very heartening to be able to continue to report progress rather than the delays which beset the project initially.
