Plaisterers’ Hall is the largest and one of the finest City livery halls in London.
History of the Hall
Located in the heart of the City of London, Plaisterers’ Hall is a purpose built venue offering all the luxury and ambience of a prestigious venue with the technical facilities of a modern space.
The company’s first hall was bequeathed by William Elder, Citizen and Plaisterer in 1556. It was situated on the corner of Addle Street and Philip Lane but was destroyed in the Great Fire of London in 1666. Its second hall was built in 1669 to the design of Sir Christopher Wren, although this too met the same sad fate by being destroyed by fire in 1882.
The current Plaisterers’ Hall opened in November 1972, its décor is of the neo-classical style created by Robert Adam in the 18th century. Various Robert Adam designs have been faithfully reproduced in great detail both on plaster and wood, some being taken from his original moulds.
Perfect for events large and small
Plaisterers’ Hall is designed to impress with its corniced ceilings, hanging with the finest gold chandeliers, and floor length windows. The Hall hosts a wide range of events, including formal livery dinners, parties, weddings, conferences and product launches through to fashion shows and photo shoots.
The adjoining rooms are equally as fine, and provide ideal additional spaces for large parties or ceremony events, as individual spaces for smaller business meetings, or intimate dinners.
Spacious rooms for social distanced gatherings
Due to the Government Covid-19 restrictions in place currently use of the Hall is restricted but the size and space offered by the Hall make it ideal for social distanced gatherings as the restrictions relax.
Plaisterers’ Hall is still available for private hire and is taking bookings. Information on revised capacities are HERE.

The ideal venue for Film and TV productions
Plaisterers’ Hall is the perfect location in the City of London, an ideal venue for Film and TV productions, and available to hire.
Either a set in its own right with its beautiful, neoclassical décor throughout, or a space in which to build one. It’s the largest livery hall in London and the large garden area is one of the few areas where the old Roman London Wall is still accessible and visible.

2021: Refurbishment of the Entrance Hall to Plaisterers’ Hall
Some good news in these uncertain times. The generous endowment left by the late Assistant John Robinson is at last enabling the Entrance Hall to be upgraded, which you will see in pictures over the next few months of the progress.
This is a positive step, confirming our commitment to the Hall and in line with the wishes of John who wanted the Entrance to reflect the rest of the Hall. Discussions with his partner, Liveryman Derek Stubbs, prior to the work commencing have allowed this work to start and to be a fitting memory of John’s wishes.
It is planned that the work will be complete by April and certainly in time for us to enjoy when we come back to events in the Hall.
