The Great War: art and architecture of remembrance


‘The Great War – art and architecture of Remembrance’, a lecture by Adrian Barlow, will take place at St Philip and St James’ on Wednesday 17th September at 6.30pm.

The art and architecture associated with remembrance has been one of the most enduring legacies of the Great War. This illustrated lecture will compare the different ways in which, during and after the war, Britain, France and Germany responded to the need for cemeteries and buildings, memorials and graphic images. The art and architecture created across Europe reveals sharply contrasting attitudes both to remembrance and to national identity. There will be a special focus on the remarkable German-British cemetery of St Symphorien at Mons, scene of the formal ceremony of reconciliation between the two countries on 4th August.

The talk will be followed by a buffet supper and wine, with the suggested ticket donation of £10 in aid of Pip and Jim’s Big Appeal (tickets will go on sale later this month).
