Elizabeth Fry

Starts at 4pm and lasts for one hour including Q&A and refreshments.

Join Gil Skidmore, an experienced speaker and writer on 18th century Quaker history (and editor of the Journal of the Friends Historical Society) to hear more about Elizabeth Fry. An English prison reformer, social reformer and, as a Quaker, a Christian philanthropist. Often referred to as the “angel of prisons”, Elizabeth’s work included ‘the bag of useful things’ project, featured in our much loved Quaker Tapestry panel ‘Elizabeth Fry and Patchwork Quilts’. There will be the opportunity for Q&A with Gil after the talk and to view ‘Elizabeth Fry and Patchwork Quilts’ panel.  Come along and discover more!

Tea and biscuits are included in the ticket price and are served after the talk has finished.

Funds raised from ticket sales to this event will support our charitable work.
