Uncovering Quaker Heritage

07/10/2017, 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

at Library of Birmingham, Birmingham

A free pop-up exhibition at the Library of Birmingham.

Birmingham and Warwickshire have been important centres of Quaker activity since the middle of the 17th century and Quakers have been highly influential in the social, economic, philanthropic and political development of the region.

If you missed the popular ‘Uncovering Quaker Heritage‘ pop-up exhibition earlier this year (or enjoyed it so much you’d like to see it again!), the Library of Birmingham Archives & Collections team are offering another opportunity for you to find out more about the records they hold and see a selection of original material from the archive of Central England Quakers, dating from the 17th century to the 20th century.

There may even be a few additional items on display which have been newly deposited in Archives & Collections during the year…

Entry is free. All are welcome: come to the Wolfson Centre on the 4th floor of the Library to view the exhibition.

This material is made accessible via the Birmingham & Warwickshire Quakers project, a cataloguing project funded by a National Archives Cataloguing Grant and a bequest from a member of Central England Quakers.
