tuesday 12 October 2021: visit to Temple of Mithras and Guildhall Amphitheatre
You are warmly invited to join the Master Glazier for a tour of London Mithraeum, and a guided tour of the Roman Amphitheatre remains at Guildhall along with its Art Gallery, with a light Scandinavian lunch in between. We hope the day can begin at 10.30 a.m. with a short talk by Liveryman Brian O’Riordan about the stained glass panels by John Hutton in Bank underground concourse, rescued from one of the buildings demolished to make way for the Bloomberg Building in Cannon Street. Bank station is not yet fully re-opened so keep your fingers crossed for this talk. At 11.00 approx. we will visit London Mithraeum, the site of the former Temple of Mithras, underneath the Bloomberg building. The Temple, built around AD 240, was re-discovered following WWII bomb damage. Restoration to its original site, and public access were conditions of planning consent for the Bloomberg building. We will then move on to a two-course light lunch with a glass of wine at the Scandinavian restaurant, Ekte, in the Bloomberg arcade, after which we will tour the remains of the Roman amphitheatre discovered under Guildhall in the 1980s when the Art Gallery was built. This will include a visit to the Gallery itself, which has a changing display of some 250 works of art. We expect the tour to finish at approx. 3.30pm. Booking details are in the Members Area (password required).
