Knutsford Tapestry Talk
Enjoy a 30 minute talk on the masterpiece created by over 3,000 members of the local community. The Tapestry captures life in Knutsford in the year 2000. Three large panels Tatton, Canute and Toft which together are an incredible 40ft long, contain a staggering 6.5million stitches! The talk explains how and why it was made and tells some of the real life stories at the heart of this unique piece of art.
You may prefer to see Knutsford from the comfort of a chair, so we offer virtual tours around Elizabeth Gaskell’s Cranford or the People and Places of Knutsford with one of our knowledgeable guides. These are digital presentations at the Centre each lasting about 45 minutes and cost £3.50 per person.
