Great Hall

The beautifully furbished Great Hall remains as it was in 1670 with a carved screen at the south end of the room, a minstrels’ gallery at the north end, and an oak floor, dating from 1671. The room is full of life sized portraits and stunning stained glass containing Coats of Arms of Past Masters and former Officers of the Society.

The central 24-branch candelabrum suspended from the ceiling was presented to the Society by Sir Benjamin Rawling, who was Sheriff of London and Master in 1736.
