Friday 09 December 2022 – Bayeaux Tapestry, Reading Museum

Booking Months: October and November
                     Cost: to be decided

The Bayeux Tapestry is one of the world’s most famous pieces of medieval art. It is seventy-metres long, and retraces the history of the Norman conquest of England, when William the Conqueror invaded and defeated King Harold Godwinson.
In the late 19th century, an extremely ambitious project was undertaken by a group of Victorian embroiderers to recreate the Bayeux Tapestry in full, painstakingly reproducing every single detail, stitch-by-stitch, so that the Tapestry’s timeless story could be enjoyed by the people of Britain.

The travel arrangements are to be decided.
Details will be emailed to members.
