The Jacqueline Hurley Art Exhibition will be on display in this stunningly beautiful building, which was designed by Sir Christopher Wren. Steeped in fascinating and tragic history, St. Clement Danes Church was heavily bombed during The Blitz and extensive restoration was and is still needed.
It was adopted by the Royal Air Force to become their Central Church and a National Memorial of Remembrance for the sacrifice of aviators during WWII and throughout the Service’s history. St. Clement Danes Church is home to the Books Of Remembrance which contain the names of over 125,000 service personnel who paid the ultimate sacrifice defending our nation since the inception of The Royal Flying Corps and The Royal Air Force.
The church has wonderful plans to expand the crypt, developing a Well-Being and Education Centre for our Armed Forces and the community, and restoration of the iconic 1719 James Gibbs Steeple which was extensively damaged by fire during The Blitz incendiary bombing raids, and complete restoration is now needed to preserve the steeple where the bells ring out on the hour, Oranges and lemon’s, say the bells of St. Clement’s! Funds raised through the exhibition of my Remembrance Collection art will help towards fundraising for these projects. For more details, please visit https://stclementdanesraf.org/
Jacqueline will be at St. Clement Danes Church for the duration of the exhibition and would love to see you there!
