Originally founded in 2015, the repeatedly sold-out indoor tabletop event brings together the very best gunmakers and shooting brands from around the globe together with 400 guests for an evening of canapés and drinks.

The Armoury House is a listed 18th century manor house that’s home to The Honourable Artillery Company. The World Gunmakers’ Evening will be held in The Prince Consort Rooms, an impressive vaulted-ceiling former drill hall. Confirmed exhibitors include English heavyweights William Evans, Purdey and Holland & Holland, Italian gunmaker Zoli, Spanish accessories brand Rey Pavón and Austrian gunmaker Karl Hauptmann.

Event director James Gower commented: “We recognise what an important purchase a new gun is. It could be a once-in-a-lifetime purchase or you may be a collector, but either way it is vital to meet the people behind the brand. World Gunmakers’ Evening is a very special event that connects master craftsmen from around the globe with British buyers who may not otherwise meet face-to-face. From a guest’s perspective, there is no other event that offers the same opportunity for information gathering and networking.” 

Tickets cost £125
