We will be displaying our ‘Mapestry’ at Wisbech Museum from 30th March until 11th April 2019. This beautiful 12-panel tapestry depicts the River Nene, its wildlife, culture and heritage throughout the year. It was made by over 1000 local people, with the help of professional textile artist Liliane Taylor, during our River Nene Dragon Finder project.
We will also be holding a ‘Dragon Fun Day’ at the museum on Thursday 11th April where you can take part in free craft and quiz activities from 10:30am – 3:00pm.
Come and join in the fun this Easter!
Museum opening times: Tuesday to Saturday 10am until 4pm – free admission
