Crieff Arts Festival presents the Scottish Diaspora Tapestry

Diaspora will be exhibited in full for first time in Scotland

A major piece of work depicting scenes of Scottish history is being exhibited in its home land for the first time.  The national treasure will go on display in Crieff this summer.

The world famous Diaspora Tapestry will be exhibited in full as part of the Strath capital’s Crieff Remembers programme of events to commemorate First World War in July.

June McEwan of Crieff Arts Festival has secured the major artwork, which has just returned from a world tour and is currently on display in Westminster at the Houses of Parliament.

The tapestry’s designer Andrew Crummy, who also designed the Great Tapestry of Scotland, will also be coming to Crieff to give a talk at Innerpeffray Library about his work.

The tapestry involves 39 countries, and although it has been on a world tour, has never been shown in its entirety in its native land.
