Events

Whitehall is now closed.

Future events will be held in Cheam Library, unless shown differently.

The Friends are having a break in August so no activities for the month.

Thursday 14th September 2017 – 2.30 pm – Cheam Library – National Garden Scheme.

As summer draws to a close, the Friends of Whitehall have arranged an illustrated talk by Margaret Arnott, Assistant County Organiser for the Surrey area of the National Gardens Scheme.

Margaret’s talk will cover the surprising origins of the NGS, what it is like to open your gardens to the public and will include many beautiful colour illustrations.

The talk may encourage you to consider fresh aspects for your garden while the Friends will be looking for some ideas for the new garden lay-out at Whitehall. Come along and join us for a colourful afternoon and a cup of tea.

Tickets £6 (FOW £5) a booking form is available.

Thursday 12th October 2017 – 2.30 pm – Tea and Chat in Cheam Library.

Join us for the monthly Friends get-together in Cheam Library. Enjoy a cup of  tea and a chat and tell us of any ideas you may have for future Friends events.

Monday 30th October 2017 – 11 am – Meet at the Monument Underground Station – Walk around the Hidden Corners of the City.

We are delighted that Friend of Whitehall and City of London Tour Guide, Valary Murphy, has offered to lead a group of Friends on a walk around the City of London, covering some of the lesser known areas of the city. There may even be an opportunity to visit the inside of Guildhall if this can be arranged.

Tickets are £6 (FOW £5) a booking form is available.

Thursday 9th November 2017 – 2.30 pm – Cheam Library – Mike Evans, Regional Director of the British Association of Friends of Museums.

Mike will join the Friends for the afternoon to give background information about the Association and its current activities. The Association brings together Friends groups to exchange ideas, give information and provide advice.

The Friends of Whitehall became members of the Association earlier in the year, joining a wide variety of organisations, such as the Friends of the Garden Museum at Lambeth. Come and enjoy a cup of tea and a chance to hear about Friends’ groups around the country.
