Charlecote Wallhanging Open Days - 7th & 14th September and 4th October
07 September 2014
Following its grand unveiling by Ann Rowley, 2013 winner of the Great British Sewing Bee, the Charlecote Wallhanging, a tapestry made up of 25 panels depicting scenes from Charlecote village, will be on display for all to see at a series of Open Days in September and October 2014.

After two years of design, stitching and a lot of hard work by the ladies and one gentleman from Charlecote, the Wallhanging is now in situ in our lovely Village Hall.

Visitors are invited to view the Wallhanging and the story behind it at Charlecote Village Hall on Sundays 7th and 14th September between 10am and 4pm.  There is no charge.

Light refreshments including delicious home made cakes will be available throughout the day.

Notecards and 2015 calendars featuring panels from the tapestry will be available to purchase.
A further viewing will be possible at our annual 'Made in Charlecote' event on Saturday 4th October where local crafts and produce will also be on sale.
