On ANZAC day 2017 a segment featured on TVNZ’s One News at 6pm regarding the Mount Felix Tapestry.
The journalist, Emma Keeling, told the story of the First World War connection between Walton-on-Thames and New Zealand that had been memorialised in a 44-panel tapestry.
The tapestry, when complete, went on display at the Riverhouse Barn Arts Centre in Walton-on-Thames during the course of 2017.
In January 2018, Radio NZ ran an article on the tapestry’s upcoming New Zealand tour.
We are thrilled to announce that the Mt Felix Tapestry is making its way to New Zealand in July 2018 and will make its debut at the Papakura Museum on Wednesday 1 August 2018. Papakura Museum is the only Auckland venue to host the tapestry exhibition.
The exhibition will run for seven weeks before heading to Christchurch for the second leg of its tour. The tour travels to Wellington, Hamilton, Dunedin, and Hawkes Bay before its final showing at the National Army Museum, Waiouru from July to September 2019.
For more information on the community tapestry project, the New Zealand tour, and to view the gallery of panels, please head over to the Mount Felix Tapestry website.
