Fred Peskett

Fred was one of the founding members of The Festival of Britain Society and his enthusiasm and drive has seen the Society thrive for over 30 years. He was very generous with his time and knowledge, and if Fred didn't know the answer to a question he always knew someone who did. His knowledge about all things Festival lent gravitas to our efforts and opened doors that might have otherwise have remained closed to us Festival ‘cranks’. Until illness prevented it, he was a delight to talk to at our get-togethers.
Fred's knowledge on other subjects including the Crystal Palace and the British Empire Exhibition among others was all embracing, and in typical Fred style he loved to share the information and his research.
He will be much missed by us all, both for his friendship and his ability to inspire.
