Millennium Embroidery at Fringe Festival

King John's royal visit in 1216

The Museum’s Bradford on Avon Millennium Embroidery will be displayed as part of the Bradford Fringe Festival. The twelve panels depict episodes in each of the centuries between the two Millennium Years of 1001 and 2001 and were sewn by hand by Bradford people, based on paintings by the late Jeanne Walpole. It can be seen for the period of 1st to 14th September in the sales office of Linden Homes, in Kingston Mills (presumably during working hours).

There will also be another chance to see the Museum’s exhibition about Bradford’s shops in the 1950s and 1960s which has formed the basis for a new book called “Brylcreem and broken biscuits” by Stephanie Laslett.
