15 – 18 May 2014 : Re-Union in Plymouth

All FBUA-UFBA members will be welcome to join us. The Re-union will based in Plymouth this year with visits to Exeter and the Eden Project in Cornwall. In 2011 we were based in Le Havre. Both cities were so extensively damaged in World War 2 so that substantial re-planning was required – In Le Havre by Auguste Perret, who was also responsible for much of the architecture, and in Plymouth by Patrick Abercrombie and other architects. Members will be able to judge the relative successes for themselves. There is a huge naval tradition in Plymouth and the gala dinner will be held in HMS Drake, the Royal Navy’s land based headquarters. In Exeter we shall be visiting the beautiful cathedral and the Guildhall, one of the earliest surviving. We shall also visit the Award winning new Forum Building (Wilkinson Eyre) at the University and Castle Drogo (Edwin Lutyens) where we shall see the largest restoration project ever undertaken by the National Trust. During Saturday, we will be visiting the famous Eden Project in Cornwall. Events will conclude on the Sunday with a chance to further explore Plymouth and have lunch at the newly refurbished Theatre Royal.
