The Cutlers’ Company throws open its doors today to give local people an insight into the historic organisation established to maintain the standards and quality of Sheffield made cutlery, including edged tools.
The current Cutlers’ Hall was built 180 years ago and is the third to be constructed on the Church Street site.
In addition to a range of banqueting and meeting rooms, it contains a unique collection of 900 items of cutlery and holloware, dating back to the 16th century, which will be on display from 10am today.
The Company is also setting up a temporary café, serving light refreshments.
Master Cutler Pam Liversidge said: “Everyone will be given a potted history of the Hall and there will be experts on hand to answer any questions.”
