The Worshipful Company of Coopers is one of the oldest in the City of London. In modern times it has evolved into the trustee of six principal charities and a social and charitable enterprise that retains an identity focused on the ancient craft of cask making.

We welcome members to enjoy a fellowship around our shared values and an interest in the history, culture and charitable endeavours that our company has pursued for the last 500 or so years.

We do hope you enjoy learning more about the Coopers’ Company, so please look around our website to find out who we are, what we do and how you can become part of it, should you wish to do so.
