Our St Paul’s/Bank walks have been featuring the Goldsmiths’ Hall and discussing its history for 15 years. On this special virtual event we go inside the famous hall for a personal guided tour of the 190-year-old building which is rarely open to the public. We will cover:

* What is a Goldsmith, what do they do?

* The link between goldsmiths and banking

* The African connections

* Black goldsmiths and jewellers

* How to become an apprentice

* A library of golden history and a chance to study

And much more!
