Fred Peskett

It is with great sadness that we have to report the passing of Fred Peskett, one of the four founding members of the Society. His knowledge of all things Festival was second to none, and without Fred's prompting it's doubtful we would have a Festival of Britain Society to keep the spirit of 1951 alive.

In memory of Fred we have set up a 'Memory Page' on the British Heart Foundation website, which can be accessed by clicking HERE

RIP Fred 1936 - 2023
