Prestonpans meets Bayeux - @ St Mary's: Your Invitation is Here

Stitchers All and Good Friends of the Tapestry ...

All good things must come to an end and the brilliant and highly successful exhibition of the Prestonpans Tapestry at St Mary's Cathedral on Palmerston Palace in Edinburgh is one such! Best estimates suggest well over 20,000 visitors will have seen the artwork, which en passant gained Top 10 Exhibition Listing from The Times at this year's Festival.

It will close, as it opened, under the auspices of the Rt Hon George Grubb, Lord Provost of Edinburgh. The ceremonial begins at 6.30 pm on August 29th. This occasion will also be graced by the presence of the 1ere Adjoint au Maire de Bayeux*, Mme Francoise Zeller. The Battle Trust is of course delighted to have such demonstration of support from Bayeux, whose fine tapestry inspired our own.

M Pierre-Alain Coffrier, Consul General de France a Edimbourg et Glasgow, will also be present.

YOUR INVITATION
6.30 pm August 29th

The Provost of the Cathedral, who most kindly arranged for the exhibition, has issued formal invitation to the closing ceremonial which will also offer wine and canapes.

All stitchers and good friends are welcome to attend but please RSVP without fail to the Cathedral which is arranging the catering. This can be done either:

- by email to: office@cathedral.net

* Alas, we have just learnt that Mme. Francoise Zeller is personally unable to attend but we are delighted to report that the Maire will now be represented by Bayeux Councillor Mme. Lydie Poullet.

Ed. Our Tapestry moves next [September] to St Mary's Church, Haddington and then south of the Border to Alexandra Palace [October] and the International Exhibition Hall in Harrogate [November]. In the Spring of 2012 it will cross the Channel to be displayed at St Nazaire, France, from which The Prince set sail for Eriskay in July 1745.
