WMT AGM: 13th November 2017

War Memorials Trust’s AGM will be held on Monday 13th November 2017. The meeting will begin at 2.30pm and will take place at St Sepulchre-without-Newgate in the City of London. The church, also known as the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, is located on Holborn Viaduct, almost opposite the Old Bailey. Alongside being the Musicians’ church and containing the ‘Execution Bell’ formerly rung at executions at the nearby Newgate gallows (leading to it being referenced in the nursery rhyme Oranges and Lemons as the “bells of Old Bailey”) St Sepulchre’s has strong military links. The gardens are a memorial for the Royal Fusiliers (City of London Regiment) whilst the south aisle is the Regimental Chapel with a number of war memorials sited around both the interior and exterior of the building.

The AGM provides a valuable opportunity to hear reports from the Trust’s Chairman and Treasurer as well as meet Trustees and staff. Full details will be sent to members with the August Bulletin. If you are planning to attend the AGM we would be very grateful if you could RSVP using the reply slip or email info@warmemorials.org. There is no need to advise us if you are unable to join us.

After the AGM Professor Gavin Stamp will give an illustrated talk on war memorials. As well as being a War Memorials Trust Trustee Professor Stamp is an architectural historian and writer. He has a particular interest in war memorials and organised the Silent Cities exhibition about the memorial and cemetery architecture of World War I held at RIBA in 1977 and in 2006 he published a study of The Memorial to the Missing of the Somme. He has published books about the architecture of Sir Edwin Luytens, the Gilbert Scott Dynasty and on Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson. Educated at Dulwich College and the University of Cambridge, he taught for a time at the Mackintosh School of Architecture in Glasgow and is an honorary professor at the University of Glasgow. He is a former Chairman of the Twentieth Century Society and has also presented television documentaries including a series about the Orient Express in 2007. After the talk tea and coffee will be served in the church and there will be an opportunity to talk to Trustees and staff informally.
