After being garnered from The Embroiders Guild and Northern Island Patchwork guild, volunteers set to work creating a tapestry clocking in at 77 metres long!

The remarkable art piece heavily utilises the genius of the 11th century Bayeux Tapestry, both in style and concept. They both characterise intense battles, illustrated through the elegant art form of embroidery.
