The Bank of England is asking for nominations for an historical British person from the visual arts to appear on the £20 note. Visual artists include architects, artists, ceramicists, craftspeople, designers, fashion designers, filmmakers, photographers, printmakers and sculptors.
I've suggested AWN Pugin.
Link to the Catholic past of our nation through gothic revival, yet use of modern methods.
Link to the Houses of Parliament.
All very suitable.
Use the link below to make a suggestion.
As far as I can work out there has never been a Catholic on a British banknote! [Except Edward elgar - as has been pointed out since I posted this! Apologies for the slip.] William Shakespeare has appeared on the £20 note and there are those who hold that he was a Catholic - probably! See Joseph Pearce's works "Through Shakespeare's Eyes" and "The Quest for Shakespeare". But many might dispute that claim and its probably not in the public consciousness.
So get over to the Bank of England site and nominate a Catholic!
