The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh see the first finished tapestry squares

Twenty-nine schools and a Guides group raced to complete their contributions to the MK40 Vision Tapestry to make it in time for the visit of The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh to Milton Keynes. Their work was on show for the Royal Party inside stadium:mk and those who were privileged to see it rated it a truly first class show. Many congratulations to all those whose work was at the event - but also to all the other schools that have since finished and sent their work to us. It is all absolutely brilliant and you have all done Milton Keynes proud.


Four-and-a-half weeks in thecentre:mk

Over four-and-a-half weeks in March and April 2008 many thousands of visitors enjoyed the exhibition of forty-eight tapestry squares in Silbury Arcade in thecentre:mk. The media loved it too, and Anglia Television featured it on an early evening news programme.

We should like to thank thecentre:mk for kindly hosting the exhibition and John Lewis Partnership for their support and for helping to put it up.


Fourteen weeks in Acorn House

Milton Keynes Community Foundation has been an outstanding supporter of the MK40 Vision Tapestry, and we were delighted when they invited us to mount a display in the Coffee Bar in Acorn House on Midsummer Boulevard, Central Milton Keynes. The display provided a great backdrop for fourteen weeks, from the end of April to the beginning of August, for the many visitors enjoying the excellent coffee and meals or using the Internet café.


Milton Keynes Hospital Heritage Open Day

MK Arts for Health include a small display of the MK40 Vision Tapestry in their highly successful event for the Heritage Open Day on Saturday 13th September 2008. The display itself stayed in the Hospital from 11th to 23rd September and was enjoyed by many visitors as well as staff and patients.
