Being held at Mill Hall Arts and Events Centre

1,000 years of local history in ten 2ft x 3ft tapestry panels

The Rochford District Heritage Tapestry was created over a period of 20 months through a community project involving 90 adults and 80 children. It covers 1,000 years of local history and is displayed in ten tapestry panels, each measuring over 2ft high by 3ft wide. Here is a link to the tapestry section of our website: https://www.rochfordtown.com/heritage-tapestry 
Following highly successful events at Ashingdon Elim Church, Rayleigh Town Museum, Rochford Parish Rooms, Barling Magna Parish Hall, Scott's of Southend garden centre in Sutton, Hockley & Hawkwell Methodist Church, St Nicholas in Great Wakering and Southend Forum Library, the tapestry is on display at the Mill Hall Arts & Events Centre in Rayleigh.
The exhibition at the Mill Hall of the Rochford District Heritage Tapestry will include all ten 2ft by 3ft framed panels, together with associated historical information. Unfortunately the fabulous knitted items, accompanying drawings and children’s activities are not on display at this time.
