Quaker Service Memorial Exhibition
16th September 2023, 10am to 4pm
The Quaker Service Memorial Exhibition will be on display which explores the work of the Friends Ambulance Unit (FAU) and Friends Relief Service (FRS) during World Wars I and II. Also we will be commemorating the meeting house at Bull St which turns 90 years old in 2023.
At the National Memorial Arboretum in Alrewas, there is a stone memorial to the FAU and FRS. The Quaker Service Memorial Exhibition brings together the work done by these units as well as other peace work undertaken by Quakers.
Alongside this exhibition will be some information on the current building at Bull St which opened on 10th September 1933. The architect was H Lidbetter who also designed Friends House in London – opposite Euston station. There has been a Quaker meeting house on this site since 1702.
Refreshments will be available. The garden has seating if the weather is good.
