Museum Musings: Tapestry Unveiling

Tapestry Unveiling

After 30 years, we are so excited to be unveiling the completed Royston Tapestry in July. So many people have volunteered their time, expertise, knowledge and skills to bring this work of art to life.

Head along to Royston Town Hall from Saturday 6th to Thursday 11th July from 10am – 5pm to see the tapestry.

So much work has gone into it, from when it was first thought up to stitching each scene and finally to getting it ready for display. And it’s all been done by local people. We live in a wonderful town with so much talent!

After being displayed in Royston, the tapestry will be off on an adventure to other museums. It may be the Royston Tapestry, but much of the history it shows applies to many other places. Like the Black Death that affected the whole country (and world!) or before becoming King James I England, he was King James VI Scotland and the stone that sits on the Cross (near the Jolly Postie) came from Yorkshire. Royston has never existed in isolation, and we’re looking forward to carrying on building links with other places and welcoming new people with more new talent to the area.

We hope to see you soon!
