A 36-metre replica of the Bayeux Tapestry and a talk about an epic embroidery project is to take place in Wisbech next month.

Mia Hansson says she embarked on her "needle journey" seven years ago.

She will be showing the majority of the work (36 metres) that she has completed so far and talking about the details of her project.

"Of course, I will also talk a bit about the original Bayeux Tapestry and those who made it," she says.

The event takes place at St Peter's Church Hall, in Wisbech, on August 26 and doors open at 1.45pm, and the talk starts at 2pm.

Afterwards, there will be approximately 30 minutes to view the embroidery up close. 

Ticket price us £7 to be paid in advance via bank transfer to secure seating, which is limited.
