Welcome to the Worshipful Company of Glaziers & Painters of Glass



COVID-19 Government Advice & Risk Assessment: Like many organisations, the Glaziers’ Company is now postponing a range of meetings and events for the time being but we will still post updates and news here on our website and on Social Media. Some of our work is carrying on, especially via our charity, where it is feasible so to do. Please check in here regularly for updates and more detailed information. Our Clerk is contactable by email. We hope that all our Members, Friends and Supporters stay well and healthy.

Stevens 2020 Competition Important Announcement

In the light of the increasing restrictions on meetings and movement of goods in both the UK and mainland Europe due to the spread of the Covid-19 virus, it has become necessary to postpone the programme for the 2020 Stevens Competition.  As a consequence, entries will no longer be required by 1700 hours on Thursday 16th April 2020. Please do not send your entries to Glaziers’ Hall until we provide further instructions. I am in discussions with the Judges, the Glaziers’ Company and Morden College to establish a new programme. I anticipate that the submission date will move to June or July 2020.  Clearly, we will seek to minimise the delay in order to still allow the commissioned panel to be available to the College for the opening of the John Morden Centre at Easter 2021. I shall inform you as quickly as possible of the revised submission date.  I would also ask you to monitor this website for information on the changing situation.
