Monday, 10th October 2022

Commemoration of the Death of John Hunter

Guided Walk – Exploring the Hidden Delights of Westminster

Followed by Evensong at Westminster Abbey


We are most grateful to the Dean and Chapter of Westminster Abbey for agreeing to the Society attending the Abbey near to the Anniversary of Hunter’s death in 1793.  We will be present at the service of Choral Evensong after which there will be a short act of commemoration at the site of Hunter’s grave in the North Aisle of the Nave.   Prior to Evensong Sue Weir has once again agreed to take us on a guided tour.  This will begin at 2.00pm outside the west door of Westminster Abbey and finishing with tea prior to Evensong.  Please let Betty know if you intend to walk so that we don’t leave anyone behind by accident.

After the service we will be returning to the excellent Locale Restaurant, Belvedere Road, about twelve minutes’ walk from the Abbey – I do hope that you will be able to join me.

2.00pm            Walk guided by Sue Weir AITG – Exploring the Hidden delights of Westminster

5.00pm             Choral Evensong followed by the act of Commemoration

6.45-7.00pm     Supper at The Locale Restaurant – the cost of the evening including a three-course meal with wine is £45 per person.  Please let me have your menu choice on the attached sheet.   There is a possibility that the choice may change but we will inform you in good time.

Guests will be most welcome
