Next Village Society Talk
Prehistoric sea creatures, Romans, Black Death, a mysterious cave – all these and more can be found on the Royston Tapestry. In 1993, the tapestry was started as a way to record Royston’s history. Fourteen scenes have so far been stitched onto one continuous piece of linen; each scene illustrates the town’s rich and diverse past. Currently, the fifteenth and final scene is being worked on at the Royston Museum. Completing a section, just a few centimetres square, can take several hours due to the detail of the design and the skill required. The finished tapestry will be over 25 metres long and will cover a period reaching back 64 million years.
This talk will follow a brief AGM. Everyone is most welcome. Members and 16’s and under free, £2.50 for visitors.
