AIDS Memorial Quilt on display in Woolwich last year.
The UK AIDS Memorial Quilt is an irreplaceable piece of social history. It tells the stories of many of those lost in the early days of the HIV AIDS epidemic in the 80’s and 90’s. There are 48 twelve-foot by twelve-foot panels, each comprising up to 8 smaller panels. Each individual panel commemorates someone who died and has been lovingly made by their friends, lovers or family.
