The Annual Dinner is always a great opportunity to renew long-standing friendships and make new ones.

Stationers’ Hall is in Ave Maria Lane, London EC4M 7DD, in the heart of the City of London, close to St Paul’s Cathedral.
Stationers derives its name from the stalls or ‘stations’ set up by manuscript writers and illuminators
around St Paul’s Cathedral. Because of this they were given the nickname ‘Stationers’ and this was the obvious choice of
name for the guild they established in 1403. The present hall was started in 1670, after the original hall
was destroyed by The Great Fire.
