Visit to Liverpool Sunday 15 March

On Sunday 15 March we will be visiting two places of particular interest in Liverpool.

At 10:30 we will visit the Abdullah Quilliam Society's mosque in Liverpool. "William Henry Quilliam, a local Liverpool solicitor and resident embraced Islam in 1887 (aged 31), after returning from a visit to Morocco, and took on the name Abdullah. He claimed that he was the first native Englishman to embrace Islam. His conversion led to a remarkable story of the growth of Islam in Victorian Britain."

To make the logistics easier, travel independently or in self-organised groups to the location. We are due to meet the mosque's organisers for a talk and tour at 10:30.

Location: Abdullah Quilliam Heritage Centre 8-10 Brougham Terrace, Liverpool, L6 1AE.

Afterwards, we will go on to Princes Road Synagogue, the first Grade I listed synagogue outside London. We have a talk and tour scheduled for 12:30. Coffee, tea and biscuits will be available.

Location: Liverpool Old Hebrew Congregation, Synagogue Chambers, Princes Road, Liverpool, L8 1TG.

After the synagogue tour, there will be plenty of time for people to see the other attractions in Liverpool, particularly the redeveloped docks, and to have lunch in the many restaurants there.

Travel: To make the logistics easier, travel independently or in self-organised groups to the location.

Car sharing: Let us know if you would like us to connect you with other people who are travelling for car sharing purposes. Making such a request will be taken as authority to share your email address with other people who are participating. We cannot guarantee that any car sharing will be possible.

Costs: One of our members has already made a donation to the Abdullah Quilliam Society and there will be no charge for this tour. There will be a charge for the Synagogue visit of £8 per person, which covers the tour and tea and coffee.

Booking: Please email if you would like to come.
