Visitors can look around the building, which is unusually elaborate and more church-like than is usual for a Quaker Meeting House. As the first building in the village for religious worship, George Cadbury wanted it to appeal to everyone, and be suitable for community use. Built in 1905, the architect, W. Alexander Harvey, was responsible for designing many of the buildings for the new village and it has features influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement. It is the only Quaker Meeting House to have an organ, built by Harrison and Harrison and installed in 1915 as a gift from George and Elizabeth Cadbury to celebrate their Silver wedding anniversary. Members of the Meeting will be present to talk about the Quakers, their history and beliefs, and Quaker literature and a small exhibition will be available. Families and children are welcome.
This event took place in September 2015 and the entry is now archived.
